BERCHEM® 4000

BERCHEM® 4000 is a non-ionic emulsion, primarily designed to impart superior lubricating properties to coating formulations used for paper and paperboard. Applications of BERCHEM® 4000 at the calender stack’s water box prevent sticking and picking. Its wide compatibility with other chemicals makes it adaptable to most formulations where lubricity and coefficient of friction reduction are required.
