Boost the performance of fibers, machines, and final products with third generation Maximyze® enzyme-based chemicals for packaging

As recycled fiber quality deteriorates and the use of filler and starch increases, turning that recycled fiber into first-quality packaging grades becomes a bigger and bigger challenge. That’s why Buckman continually works to minimize the need for mechanical refining while maximizing the potential of every recycled fiber. With third generation Maximyze, we’ve made the industry leader even better. You’ll see the improvements in ring crush, concora and burst indexes for both refined and unrefined fiber. And you’ll see it in the bottom line.

Third generation Maximyze enzymatic fiber modification gives you much more flexibility in how you use refining to meet your process and product needs for drainage and strength.
