The move towards better paper and water recycling practices means more chemicals are added to the mix to maintain paper and board quality. When paper is recycled multiple times, larger amounts of chemicals are needed to maintain the performance levels of the paper.
SNF is continuously researching and developing new products to counter these problems, with the ultimate goal of improving recycling techniques and therefore lowering our reliance on new trees needed for paper production.
SNF are constantly developing new products to suit the specific needs and challenges of the paper-making industry.
Our complete range of hydro-soluble polymers has been specifically designed to handle all the issues occurring in the wet end stages of the paper-making process:
By using these products, paper makers can increase runability (the ease with which paper runs through a machine), protect the environment, use less water, and reduce their overall costs.
SNF’s full range of synthetic agents impart dry strength properties as well as temporary wet strength properties.
The SNF products can be used for all kinds of paper production including recycled paper and virgin fibers, whether bleached or unbleached. Our products are used in the production of packaging, fine paper and tissue.
