Advanced technologies at paper chemicals: wet strength agents – Giluton®

For more than three decades Kurita has established a leading position in the European market for wet strength additives. Our Giluton® wet strength resins are based on polyamidoamine-epichlorohydrin (PAAE) chemistry and are primarily applied under neutral to slightly alkaline conditions. A PAAE resin supports:
  • wet strength
  • fines and filler retention
  • trash fixation
  • performance of other additives, e.g. wet end sizing
  • creping at the Yankee cylinder (tissue)
  • dry strength
  • system charge balance

Our strong commitment to R&D has led to an advanced portfolio fulfilling the needs of particular applications and meeting the requirements of BfR (Bundesinstitut für Risikoanalyse), FDA and China GB 9685-2008-Standard. Furthermore the majority of our portfolio complies with the requirements of the RAL-Umweltzeichen, the Nordic Swan- and the EU Ecolabel. We encourage you to watch the video below to see a lab test with Giluton® and the production process of wet strengthened paper with our pilot paper machine.
