Detailed description

In paper coating applications, selecting the right FINNFIX solution will help the manufacturer to adjust the rheology to different shear conditions such as pumping, mixing, screening and metering. In addition to rheology modification, FINNFIX grades provide good water retention and for this reason FINNFIX is used to control water and material movement to anchor the coating to its base and additionally ensure a high quality of the coated surface. Film forming properties of FINNFIX CMCs are of importance when a barrier layer is formed on a paper surface.
