Optimyze® for Stickies Control

For superior stickies control in recycled fiber, stick with a leader in deposit control technology.

As adhesive technology becomes more and more complex and the demand for recycled fiber in packaging grows, mills are getting stuck with a bigger and bigger problem. Stubborn stickies. They downgrade quality, reduce output, and cost a lot of money. In fact, stickies cost the pulp and paper industry tens of millions of dollars every year.

Buckman stickies control technologies can set mills free. Our Optimyze® and Optimyze Plus enzymatic programs are proven to prevent stickies from agglomerating into bigger ones and interfering with recycling, pulp, and paper machine operations. So mills can reduce downtime, produce more packaging with improved quality, and make more profit.

Our solutions include:

  • Unique enzyme flotation aids designed for higher stickies removal
  • Green, low VOC solvent products for forming fabrics
  • Technology to control deposition on rolls
  • Passivation products to treat forming fabrics
  • Patented enzyme-based felt conditioners to control stickies in wet felts
  • Patented enzyme products to reduce and control stickies
  • Patented copolymer products to prevent re-agglomeration

Unique enzymes. Unique results.

Buckman’s patented Optimyze® and Optimyze Plus enzymes are unique in the industry, able to reduce the size and loading of both micro and macrostickies in your system. Effective In conjunction with our organic detackifier, Optimyze enzyme technologies can:
