    Aquazol's excellent water solubility and thermal stability makes it a preferred substitute for PVOH and PVP in high temperature applications. Currently, it is used in a variety of hot-melt and pressure-sensitive adhesive products. and has found its way into conservation as a non-ionic polymer.

    Solubility: Highly soluble in many polar, organic solvents such as: acetone, dimethyl formamide, ethanol, methanol, methylene chloride, methyl ethyl ketone, and water. Stable in weak acids and weak bases. Amide group hydrolyzes in strong acids and strong bases.
