ATLANTA (August 12, 2020) – Make Paper Products Stand Out: Strategic Use of Wet End Chemical Additives, a new release from TAPPI Press, will help paper technologists differentiate their products and better meet the paper performance needs of their customers.
According to Martin A. Hubbe, one of the book’s editors, “Readers will learn how to use functional additives as a tool to gain competitive advantages, efficiently leverage investments and fine-tune products.”
The addition of relatively small amounts of papermaking additives such as dyes, hydrophobic sizing agents, dry strength agents, and wet-strength agents can significantly change the properties of paper. Such agents can markedly affect attributes of the paper product, including color, brightness, opacity, resistance to fluids, liquid absorption or holdout characteristics, as well as a wide range of strength attributes. Make Paper Products Stand Out highlights many of the approaches that papermakers utilize to adjust and control critical properties necessary for the performance of their paper grades.
The book’s 19 authors dive deeply into: colorants; fluid resistance; absorbency; tactile and frictional effects; security papers; dry strength; bulky, formable, or foldable paper; and printing paper.
This is the second joint editorial effort for Hubbe and Scott Rosencrance. They co-edited Advances in Papermaking Wet End Chemistry Application Technologies, also from TAPPI Press, in 2018. The duo is already working on a third publication about process additives for paper.
Make Paper Products Stand Out is available for $95 for TAPPI Members; $124 for non-members. Ebook format is also available. Orders can be placed online or through TAPPI’s Member Connection Center, 1-800-332-8686 (US).
