Tapestry℠ Yankee Coating Solutions

Tapestry℠ Yankee Coating Solutions from Solenis is a toolbox of capabilities that enable tissue makers to develop a consistently reliable Yankee coating. The toolbox includes a family of industry-leading technologies, a team of applications and field experts with deep experience in optimizing Yankee coating properties, and a robust R&D organization that constantly advances the leading edge of tissue making science. When tissue mills use Tapestry to optimize their Yankee coating, they can overcome operating condition challenges and achieve a number of key benefits, including:

  • Improved asset protection and chatter prevention
  • Enhanced runnability with fewer blade changes and longer intervals between cylinder polishes/grinds
  • Improved creping quality that enhances final product softness, strength and absorbency

A reliable Yankee coating can also impact your bottom line by boosting revenue, improving mill profitability and controlling costs.

Tapestry Technologies

Tapestry Yankee Coating Solutions include the most advanced chemistries on the market, designed specifically for tissue makers striving to optimize Yankee performance. These products include:

Creping Adhesive Technology New patented creping adhesives open up the operating window on the machine by controlling adhesion between the tissue and the Yankee cylinder under variable operating conditions, including the extremes of high or low moisture and high temperatures. This allows for improved machine efficiencies and reduced energy consumption on any Yankee surface.

Coating Modifier Technology – Solenis coating modifiers are highly adaptive technologies that alter the functional characteristics of adhesion in response to changing Yankee conditions, helping to control rewettability, coating development, rheology and uniformity. Key benefits include controlled adhesion, bulk/caliper improvements, increased stretch and coating uniformity.

Release Aid Technology – This technology provides you with a consistent and uniform coating film to aid in the release of the sheet from the Yankee cylinder. New multifunctional release aids from Solenis change the technology curve to add additional sheet properties, such as improved softness or increased absorbency. Benefits include increased doctor blade life, control of coating buildup and Yankee cylinder edge control.

How It Works

A reliable Yankee coating is essential for efficient and profitable operation of a tissue machine, yet many mills struggle to achieve and maintain consistent performance due to inconsistencies in temperature, moisture, and/or other operating condition challenges. Solenis Tapestry Yankee Coating Solutions offer a best-in-class toolbox of capabilities that enable development of a consistently reliable coating. Attributes of a Solenis Yankee coating include:

  • Doctorability. Tapestry chemistries deliver a coating with the right rheology for optimum creping — a coating that remains stable and consistent throughout the life of the creping blade and quickly reestablishes itself after the blade changes. It also absorbs potential blade vibrations.
  • Edge control. The right coating leads to clean edges on the Yankee cylinder, which reduces sheet breaks and delivers predictable creping quality.
  • Coating uniformity. Excessive buildup or streaks can occur on a Yankee cylinder with some types of coatings. Streaks can cause differences in the profile of adhesion across the width of the dryer, resulting in lumps or wrinkles in the finished roll of paper. Tapestry Yankee Coating Solutions produce a more uniform coating, which improves the operational stability of the Yankee system.
