Cartaspers: Effective Control of Pitch and Sticky Deposits
Archroma’s deposit control products prevent the clogging-up of machine clothing with “stickies” – the resin and adhesive particles inherent in waste paper and caused for example by address labels or envelope edges.
Downtime, due to “stickie” contamination, is practically eliminated and the amount of hydrocarbon cleaning solvent, for dissolving and removing the contaminants, is reduced by up to 90%.
Papermakers using recycled paper in their production process can wave goodbye to “stickies” and look forward to cost-efficient manufacturing with Archroma’s pioneering Cartaspers PSM.
Cartaspers PSM from Archroma, a leading supplier of Optical Brighteners, Colorants and Chemicals for the paper market, prevents the clogging-up of machine clothing with “stickies” – the resin and adhesive particles inherent in waste paper and caused for example by address labels or envelope edges.
Archroma’s patented Cartaspers PSM liquid is available globally and is easy to use. It is added to the shower water during the paper production process and adsorbs on the machine clothing to provide a repellent protective layer. This allows the “stickies” to be rinsed away before they can build up and contaminate the fabrics.
Cartaspers® SCH and Cartabond® DST.01
Archroma offers papermakers new deposit control solutions with the addition of Cartaspers SCH and Cartabond DST.01 to its range. The extended portfolio has been developed specifically to improve machine cleanliness and runnability when wastepaper is used as a raw material in the papermaking process.
Cartaspers SCH makes use of nano-technology to introduce trillions of tiny polymer particles into the wet-end of a paper machine system. The emulsion particles, which are hydrophobic in nature, are derived from a very hard (high melting point) polymer. In a typical wet-end environment, the tiny polymer spheres associate themselves with other hydrophobic components in the pulp slurry.
