Increased Tissue Machine Efficiency and Product Performance Using A Novel, Structured Wet Strength Resin, 19TissueCon

Wet strength resins are essential performance chemicals used in the production of tissue, towel and napkin grades.  Wet strength resins allow these products to retain a significant amount of their tensile strength when wet.  A recent innovation has resulted in a step-change in wet strength performance using a technology that employs novel raw materials and a unique manufacturing process.  This unique technology has proven to reduce resin dosages by up to forty percent while maintaining wet tensile strength targets and achieving higher maximum wet and dry tensile strength.  Lower resin dosage can reduce cost-in-use and reduce the contents of both volatile organic compounds (VOC) and chlorinated by-products.  Higher maximum wet tensile strength allows for new grade development, fiber substitution, and other operational improvements such as improved drying and speed capacity through reduced refining.  The new wet strength resins can be coupled with unique dry strength chemistries to provide even greater improvements in strength efficiency or tensile development.  This paper will demonstrate the improved efficiency and effectiveness of the novel wet strength resin through lab, pilot and commercial case studies.
