Paper Chemistry for New Markets: An Overview, November/December 2023 Paper360º

The versatility of papermaking can be an asset when addressing the needs of new potential customers who have new requirements. Much of that versatility can be achieved by use of chemical additives to the papermaking process.


Among the thousands of available chemical additives, papermakers can place most of them into two categories. Some of them get categorized as “process additives.” Examples include defoamers, slimacides, retention aids, and stickies-control agents. They help the papermakers maintain runnability and production. But when a potential customer has a new set of requirements, the paper-maker can turn to a category called “functional additives.” Examples of these include hydrophobic sizing agents, superabsorbent polymers, strength agents, and colorants, among many others.
