    Improve tissue softness without giving up tensile strength with on-machine softeners from Buckman’s chemicals portfolio.

    There’s nothing soft about the market for softer tissue. Customers are clamoring for it. And they want it for a competitive price. Unfortunately, lotionizing is expensive. And conventional chemical softeners can cause significant loss of tensile strength and negatively impact the Yankee coating. Buckman has a better way. Our newest on-machine softening technologies can enable mid-market and low-cost tissue producers to meet both the softness requirements and price points customers want without sacrificing tissue strength. You’ll get higher perceived value, a better-performing product, and a new opportunity to build both sales and profit.

    Buckman’s on-machine softening applications for tissue include wet end lotions and spray-on softeners that are easy to apply and offer improved softness without the drawbacks of debonding chemistries, which only improve handfeel at the expense of strength.

    • Base sheet design optimization with customer
    • Design and supply of automatic dosing systems and spray booms.
    • Wet end debonders for tensile control
