VANCOUVER, BC, Canada, March 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Aicello announced today an agreement to acquire Tohcello Company's polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) film product line and assets. The move is part of Aicello's strategy to expand PVA film business as a core product offering, by increasing production capacity and leveraging the assets and technology included in the acquisition. The sale will be completed on April 1, 2009.

PVA film has a combination of several unique properties, making it ideal in applications such as water soluble packaging, mold release and transfer printing. PVA film's biodegradability and water solubility meet the needs of today's sustainability requirements for consumer unit dose laundry and dishwashing detergents. With significant growth in global demand, the acquisition allows continued expansion in current commercial markets, as well as development of new markets in the future. Aicello's long term strategy is to combine the company's research and development capabilities with the film's exceptional properties, in order to modify and optimize PVA film into innovative new markets.
