Surface Treatments

paper-printability.jpgPapermakers rely on a variety of surface additives to enhance the functional and visual properties of their paper and board products. Solenis offers a full 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), printability, adhesion, scuff resistance, and porosity. In addition, we offer personalized technical assistance to ensure every treatment program is optimized for each customer’s specific production environment and contributes to the market position of their products.
