Innovative chemistries, advanced monitoring and control systems, and expert support for your surface treatment challenges.
Papermakers rely on a variety of surface treatments to enhance the functional and visual properties of their paper and board products. Solenis offers a complete line of paper surface treatments that prevent water penetration and oil penetration as well as treatments that improve performance properties such as coefficient of friction (COF), sizing, printability, toner adhesion, scuff resistance, surface strength, porosity, and offset and inkjet print performance.
For printing papers, surface treatments offer product options for reducing fiber wettability and the radius of the pores or capillaries, making liquid penetration more difficult. For the inkjet and other digital print markets, there are a variety of demands that our paper surface treatments help balance, such as water fastness, print density and print clarity for both dye-based and pigment-based inks. For other digital print there are a variety of toner adhesion and holdout demands that are met using tailored surface treatments for this market.
