Focus on Packaging and Transportation

Additive gives papers and cardboard improved strength

The Cartastrength DST.03 liquid additive allows manufacturers of packaging (including corrugated fiberboard), and tissue papers, wipes and napkins, to manufacture products that have increased wet and dry strength (even those containing recycled fibers as a main raw material), compared to competing products, according to the company. The additive replaces starch, an improvement that can improve tissue attributes while also reducing chemical oxygen demand (COD) loadings in the manufacturing effluent. —Archroma, Reinach, Switzerland
