Switch to Selvol polymers for improved oil penetration control in food grade applications, and improved ink holdout and feathering control on uncoated printing and writing grade paper.
- Recycled paperboard mill achieved a 20-unit Vanceometer improvement by switching to a 70/30 starch/Selvol PVOH formulation from a straight starch system.
- Solid, bleached paperboard mill achieved an 80 Vanceometer specification- unobtainable with starch alone- by switching to a 60/40 starch to Selvol PVOH formulation.
Selvol polymers offer a full range of partially, intermediate and fully hydrolyzed polyvinyl alcohol products, including novel copolymer technologies for a wide variety of specialty paper applications such as ink jet, silicone release, thermal, creping and packaging products.
