Additives for Paper Coatings

Paper coatings include coatings for thermal paper, paper packaging, inkjet receptive paper coatings, and other specialty coatings for paper.  Paper coatings are typically applied via a curtain coating process, which offers specialty performance characteristics. 


A waterborne coating is an environmentally friendly surface treatment that uses water as a solvent to disperse the resin used to make the coating or paint. Water comprises a minimum of 80% of the solvent used. Its aim is to make the coating or paint an easy-to-apply, eco-friendly product. Waterborne coatings are widely used due to their low VOC (volatile organic compounds) content.
