CASE STUDY ULTERION 2100 WT NON-WICKING MEDIUM Benefits
Ulterion 2100 WT produced a non-wicking linerboard that was gluable when combined with Ulterion 2100 WT treated non-wicking liner. Ulterion 542 OPV coated linerboard is a non-blocking water repellant coating that produced boxes that held water for one month when combined with Ulterion 2100 WT non-wicking medium. The combined board passed the FBA protocol for recyclability.
Objectives of Study
Produce a recyclable/repulpable water resistant medium that is non-wicking to water and combinable with Ulterion 2100 WT non-wicking linerboard. Target Properties
Overview of Study
Ulterion 8070 was introduced to the discharge of the white water chest in order to optimize the system charge and allow for proper attachment of Ulterion 2100 WT to the fiber. The Ulterion 8070 was added at a dosage of 20 wet #/ton. The Ulterion 2100 WT was added after the refiners and prior to the machine chest at a dosage of 50 wet #/ton. ASA was added at 8 wet #/ton. There were no runability issues during the trial or later production runs and all broke was successfully recycled without affect on the paper produced.
