Don’t Get Stuck! (Stickies Control Technology for Recycled Fiber)

From PaperAge July/August 2011

As adhesive technology becomes more and more complex and the demand for recycled content in paper products grows, papermakers are getting stuck with a bigger and bigger problem —stubborn stickies in their recycled furnish.  Buckman originally launched its enzymatic stickies control technology Optimyze® in 2004. However, in order to broaden applied areas, the company developed a new generation of enzymatic products called Optimyze Plus, which have shown improved performance in mill applications.
