Pulp & Paper Chemistries and Smart Technology

Stronger packaging requires smarter solutions.

Helping our pulp and paper customers succeed takes more than mere commitment. It takes a level of focus that only Buckman can bring. We make it a point to truly know your industry and understand the nuances that can affect your operation. And we surround that knowledge with the latest smart technologies, patented innovations, eco-friendly chemistries and customer-centered solutions.

Buckman is a global provider of chemical solutions and smart technologies for pulp and papermakers. Visit us at PaperCon 2019 Booth 323 to learn more about these technologies:


Reinforce is more than strength and drainage aids. It’s a holistic approach that includes advanced technologies to enable wet end chemistries to work better and paper machines to be more productive.

Busan® Stabilization Technology

With the declining quality of today’s recycled fiber, it is harder than ever to maintain sheet strength and contain costs. The higher levels of starch and calcium carbonate filler can easily be degraded by microbial activity resulting in loss of yield and increased scaling downstream. That’s why Buckman offers Busan stabilization technology. It stabilizes starch and calcium carbonate by controlling the microorganisms that can destroy them. So, even in the face of declining furnish quality, you can improve product quality and yield, reduce system conductivity and reduce the total cost of operation.

Maximyze® Enzymatic Fiber Refining

Third Generation Maximyze helps recycled packaging mills improve drainage, machine speed and plybond strength while reducing costs and improving sustainability.

Precision® Production Aids for Recycled Fiber

From more effective strength and drainage aids to products that improve microfloc formation and retention, Buckman provides the precision you need to succeed.


What sets ECHOWISE sonar technology apart from other monitoring options is its innovative, non-invasive design without moving parts or direct contact to process fluids. Installation is safe and easy with no required downtime. ECHOWISE is highly reliable and accurate providing real-time continuous measurement of your entrained air. Unlike conventional technologies, ECHOWISE is not maintenance intensive…no sample lines to plug and no calibration needed.


Our state-of-the-art pulp mill drainage aid technologies can help you increase drainage and eliminate production bottlenecks, improve washing for cleaner pulp and lower bleaching costs, and eliminate defoamer-related pitch deposit issues.


Vybrant® pre- and post-bleach enzymatic technologies can help you hit pulp brightness targets with less chlorine dioxide, fewer bottlenecks, reduced reversion, and reduced costs and environmental impact.

TAD+® Coating Technology for Structured Tissue

This coating package can help your mill save energy, speed production, and improve profitability. This unique coating matrix works with your TAD, NTT and ATMOS technologies to extrude fiber from deep in the structured fabric, promoting deeper pockets, greater definition and extra softness.

On-Machine Softening

This new technology improves your tissue softness without giving up tensile strength. Our applications include wet end lotions and spray-on softeners that are easy to apply and offer improved softness without the drawbacks of debonding chemistries.

Yankee Creping

Bubond® chemistries provide strong support for your entire Yankee creping operation, solving problems and creating opportunities that lead to a better tissue and more efficient tissue making. Improve your dry crepe, wet crepe, or advanced technology tissue and towel process.

TissuePulse™ Natural Coating Analyzer

The wet end of your tissue machine is having an impact on your Yankee coating. All those soluble and colloidal substances that end up precipitating on your dryer are what is referred to as natural coating, and it varies constantly.  TissuePulse Natural Coating Analyzer provides real-time measurements and monitoring so that you can proactively make coating adjustments to improve runnability, reduce rejects, improve quality and save blade life.
