In the manufacturing of pulp, the raw material for paper, problems such as the piercing and ripping of paper occur due to calcium carbonate and other scales and pitch deposits (adhesives contained in wood and old paper). To prevent these problems, Kurita Water Industries offers a range of water treatment chemicals such as anti-scale agents and pitch control agents .
For the paper-forming process that produces paper from pulp, we offer water treatment chemicals such as slime control agents that help improve the paper quality by removing the bacteria and fungi in the water that dissolved pulp. We also provide yield and drainage improvers that help improve production efficiency by making drainage better.
