OverviewIn today’s environmentally focused paper industry, building oil & grease resistance with traditional materials presents economic, recycling and repulping challenges to papermakers. AquaSol’s AquaBloc product series introduces naturally based products that provide OGR performance without the expense and typical penalties associated with traditional materials.
Benefits of AquaBloc
- 100% bio-based polymer
- 100% Fluorochemical and wax free
- Low to moderate Kit values with single coating
- Higher Kit values with multiple passes or use of coater
- Easy make down
- Designed for existing applicator equipment
- FDA certified for food contact
- BfR approved
AquaBloc series products provide excellent OGR performance while minimizing the viscosity impact in clear or pigmented size solutions. Products are available for rod/blade coaters and for flooded nip size press applicators. AquaBloc products provide excellent film formation allowing targeted OGR performance at low pickup levels.
Used in single pass coatings they provide low to moderate Kit values, but levels up to 12 can be reached with multiple coats.
AquaBloc series products are designed to add minimal viscosity to coating solutions while providing excellent film formation and barrier performance.
The bottom line is value. AquaBloc series products provide economical, environmentally compatible alternatives to traditional OGR solutions through the use of natural bio-based polymers.
