Strength Additives


Solenis offers a broad selection of wet and dry strength additives that enhance the end-use performance of tissue and towel, graphic and specialty papers, and packaging board. These additives allow papermakers to manage the required wet and dry strength characteristics of their products, as well as enable them to develop new and improved paper grades and, in many cases, improve their machine operating efficiency.

Notably, in the 1950s, Solenis invented the first polyamidoamine-epichlorohydrin (PAE) wet strength resin. Today, Solenis offers the broadest portfolio of permanent and temporary wet strength resins in the world.
