Can we have offset printed paper that make colors crisp & sharp?

WE LOVE:

  • Sharp & crisp prints even with offset litho conditions
  • White paper that makes colors pop

BUT DID YOU KNOW:

  • Printing in high speed can lead to a paper dusting…
  • …these dust particles can end up on the paper and the printing roll, creating defects in the print

PRINT IT SHARP/ A system for superior printing paper even with offset high speeds that is safer for the consumer and the planet

Cartabond® TSI

Surface strength agent

  • Improves wet surface strength properties of coated and size press treated papers
  • Improves the printability of offset printing papers
  • Reacts quickly: the surface strengthening effect is already obtained at the end of the drying section
  • Has a temporary strengthening effect when the treated paper is fully immersed in water (easy recycling/repulping of broke)
  • Excellent way to reduce surface strength costs, when compared with commonly used UF and MF resins
  • Food contact compliant with aqueous & fatty foods/dry and non-fatty foods

Cartabond® TSI-NG

Surface strength agent

  • Borax free version of Cartabond® TSI without losing the functionality of TSI
  • Food contact compliant with dry and non-fatty foods only

Cartabond® EPI

Surface strength agent

  • Non-urea containing version (Urea free)*
  • Improves wet surface strength properties of coated and size press treated papers
  • Improves the offset press runnability with less deposits on the blanket
  • Reacts quickly: the surface strengthening effect is already obtained at the end of the drying section (improving paper quality)
  • Has a temporary strengthening effect when the treated paper is fully immersed in water (easy recycling/repulping of broke)
  • Food contact compliant with aqueous & fatty foods/dry and non-fatty foods

Cartabond® NY

Surface strength agent

  • Can be classified as non-hazardous – it has low residual glyoxal content and therefore avoids CMR labelling.
  • Is an excellent way to reduce surface strength improvement costs.
  • Food contact compliant with dry and non-fatty foods only
