Archroma, a global leader in color and specialty chemicals, is demonstrating its active support for greater sustainability in the products and manufacturing processes of the global paper industry at the China International Paper Technology Exhibition (CIPTE) 2016. The company is presenting its new food compliant colorant solutions at the show, further extending its innovation and sustainability-focused portfolio for paper, packaging and tissue applications.
True to its motto “We touch and color people’s lives, every day, everywhere”, Archroma offers papermakers the opportunity to choose innovative, sustainable solutions to enhance the optical and functional properties of paper, packaging and tissue for a wide range of applications. Archroma’s value-adding sustainability also extends to papermakers themselves through solutions for reducing machine downtime and enhancing productivity.
Visitors can experience the following innovations at Booth A812:
New Cartasol® food compliant colorant solutions: Archroma introduces China’s tissue papermakers to the latest additions to its palette of safer dye grades. Extending its extensive portfolio of food contact compliant dyes, the four new formulations meet current EU regulations, are REACH compliant and fulfill the requirements of most eco-labels. The dyes are produced with no added diethanolamine or triethanolmine and create strong, bold colors for a wide range of tissue applications including deep dyed napkins. The reformulation of the dyes also results in reduced effluent loading, meaning that customers can benefit from reduced effluent treatment costs and the advantage of an improved ecological profile.
Highly efficient grease and water resistant surface and coating additives: Archroma offers brand owners the opportunity to use healthier, eco-friendlier paper and board food packaging. Its latest grease, oil and water barrier innovations are based on new C6 chemistry with PFOA under detection limit. They are FDA and BfR approved.
Stickies and natural pitch deposit control additives for a faster production process: Archroma’s deposit control range supports producers in speeding-up the pulp and papermaking process by preventing deposition of stickies and natural pitch in all hardness environments. Stickie contamination of machinery is minimized, practically eliminating downtime for cleaning.
“At Archroma, we continuously challenge the status quo by opening doors in the deep belief that we can make our industry sustainable. Our focus on innovations that also support greater sustainability is making it easier than ever for papermakers in China and the rest of the world to develop both creative solutions and lessen the environmental and health impact of their products and production processes. By striking a balance between ecological and economic needs, we can make our industry sustainable,” comments Guoping Gong, Commercial Marketing Manager, Paper Solutions, Asia, at Archroma.
