Paper and board wet end is a complex system with multiple components and process variables. CP Kelco offers specifically designed CALEXIS grades, and global technical capabilities and expertise to help manufacturers develop quality products featuring a variety of furnishes, variable levels of mineral fillers and a range of finishing processes.
The increased strength allows cost optimizations like replacing fibers by cheaper fillers or fibers. Furthermore, CALEXIS® CMC supports the retention of cationic chemicals (i.e. cationic starch, wet strength resins) which leads to higher strength levels and to optimized use of the chemicals. Finally Calexis products balance charge levels allowing for optimized overall retention leading to improved runnability.
