Elevate product performance. Lower their processing costs.
Even when it’s a blank 8.5 by 11-inch canvas, paper is anything but simple to make.
As demand for paper alternatives for single-use packaging intensifies, attention is shifting to the environmental impact of pulp and paper manufacturing and the functionality of paper materials.
Strengthening paper technology and sustainability
Pulp, paper, and board products are made from an abundance of resources, industrial equipment, and chemical treatments. Specialized coatings are often added to give paper its final material composition and appearance.
Regardless of the desired features of the end-use product, formulation aids like rheology modifiers can notably improve paper coating performance – and product capabilities by extension.
Formulation aids can serve to regulate optical properties, wet and dry strength, viscosity, pigment dispersion, and more.
Formulation aids we offer
Regardless of the application, formulation aids can help reduce paper manufacturing costs by increasing production reliability and output.
Our products can offer the following to allow paper manufacturers to transform their operations:
- Highly efficient thickening for paper coatings
- Food contact compliance
- Balance of Brookfield and high shear viscosity profiles
- Low VOC
- Improved pigment dispersion
Materials scientists at Dow can also work with you to help ensure your products are safe for food and beverage contact and medical packaging applications.
Our food contact compliant solutions allow runnability across a wide array of coating and printing processes.
Let’s work together to make the next generation of paper products more capable, more sustainable, and more cost effective than ever before.
