What kind of speciality products does Kurita provide?

From food & beverage filtration via banknotes to laminate base papers – numerous speciality paper products require a high wet strength – our Giluton® wet strength agent portfolio for wet and dry strength improvement offer a maximum strength enhancement in compliance with the regulatory framework conditions. In addition, they provide a number of proven benefits to paper such as increased machine speed or a higher utilization of low-cost fibre.

Paper can be non-flammable! Our environmentally friendly, halogen-free Pyrex® flame retardant chemistry has a key role for surface applications, manufacturers can easily produce a flame retardant cellulose based product. Both liquid and crystalline formulations are available.

The controlled absorbance of liquid (water, ink etc.) into the paper fibre web by applying a sizing agent has a key role in paper making processes. Kurita has a leading position in supplying and applying state of art surface sizing agents in the paper industry. Classical and non-woven wallpapers require high dimensional stability and a controlled adhesive uptake – Perglutin® surface sizing agent provides both of these while supporting the paper strength properties. Additionally, thanks to Perglutin®, the downtime of the paper machine is decreased and the loss of raw materials due to cleaning is reduced.
