BERSIZE® ASA Series
Vertellus alkenyl succinic anhydride (ASA) technology provides a fast reaction rate with cellulose and develops efficient hydrophobicity in a range of pulp furnishes. As an internal size, ASA has less impact on final product friction properties as compared to competing for AKD.
Products in the BERSIZE® ASA Series is the most suitable choice for use in precision sizing with recycled packaging (gluing and converting concerns) grades and printing & writing grades (ink/water balance). Gives the papermaker the ability to size systems down to 5.5 pH and presents the lowest cost-in-use sizing chemistry for most wet-end systems. BERSIZE® ASA technology is adopted for use by many leading companies in the Paper industry.
PENTASIZE® ASA technology provides for an equally high-performing sizing agent and has an alternate supply chain well-suited to servicing the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) papermaking markets.
Our Castorwax solution is a natural lubricant alternative for petroleum-based waxes in rubber, tubing, & plastics applications. Hydrogenated Castor Oil has a discrete melt point, which provides consistency relative to other waxes.
