NCR Biochemical has recently developed a new specific line of additives, mainly based on modified Enzymes, able to bring in the tissue pulp and water circuit a much friendly environment to get technical results, enhancing the specific mechanical characteristics intrinsically already present inside the pulp. This new type of additives, named RENZYME, in particular the RENZYME PCR 4, could allow the tissue paper sheet to be produced having:
- Better absorbency.
- Better mechanical strength.
- Reduced production energy.
- Lower impact on costs, then allow higher profits for the tissue producer.
How to get these advantages?
The obtention of specific technical advantages is in the aim of all the process additives that NCR Biochemical group and our R&D department study and implement on our customer’s facilities. The new line of RENZYME additives, with innovative Enzymatic character, has the ability to refine the cellulose fibers in a very selective way, opening the active sites allowing the creation of a networking of connections between them; the implementation of number and connecting energy between the inter-fiber bonds is the real innovation we can apport. The below details could better explain how the innovative production process impact the application in the tissue production and is able to carry out the required performances.
“FIBRILLATION EFFECT” – RENZYME PCR 4 opens up hornified regions in the dried pulp fibers, allowing better fibrillation, that lead to strength benefit and consequently stronger paper.
“DRAINAGE EFFECT” – RENZYME PCR 4 disintegrates colloidal material, then the water can fall freely, increasing drainage and sheet porosity.
“FIBRE COLLAPS” – By penetrating fibres walls, RENZYME PCR 4 encourages internal fibrillation, bringing to fiber collapse that increases surface area of the fibres, with better sheet formation & mechanical strength.
