Stickies Control

Stickies Control for Recycled Paper Production

Chemical methods include solutions of enzymes/surfactants/dispersants/passivators that break down stickies into water-soluble particles to prevent deposition on the machine clothing. Synmac stickies products controlling stickies and minimizing their effects on the operation of the mill. Stickie contaminants are a problem for recyclers of market pulp and the papermakers using it. Stickies varies in the type and amount that are found in the different grades of recycled fiber. Stickies can cause machine availability and quality problems.


A successful strategy to control stickies will result in an increase in brightness in the finished product, improved/increased production and a reduction in the quantities of cleaning solvents, and significant reduction in downtime.

    PEPSYN* SCA surfactants and polymers

    PEPSYN-SCA is a mixture of special surfactants and polymers that maintain stickies in a dispersed state and then affix these stickies to the surface of the fibers for recycled paper production.
