Retrosize sizing

Retrosize sizing

Internal Sizing Agent

Retrosize® is a highly effective synthetic sizing agent on the basis of succinic acid anhydride. Suitable for ph-ranges of 4,5 – 10,5 Retrosize® is applicable to all current pulp- and filler-formulations.

Retrosize® KD is a highly effective starch- and polymer-stabilised AKD-dispersion with a light to high cationic charge. As an internal sizing agent in neutral or alkaline fibre-systems it is highly suitable for any kind of paper- and board-production.

Surface Sizing

Retrochem® Phorb is a highly effective polymer-stabilised AKD-dispersion with a light to high cationic charge, suitable for application as a surface sizing agent in all kinds of size presses.

Retrochem strength

Retrochem strength

The synthetic Retrochem® Strength products are applied to improve both the dry strength and the structure strength of paper.

Retrochem flocculation: Retrofloc®

Retrochem flocculation: Retrofloc®

The high-molecular, cationic, anionic and non-ionic polyacrylamides are applied as flocculants in the production of paper and board. They are used to improve retention of pulp, fines and filler material. In addition these flocculants are effective in fibre recovery as well as in integrated water treatment plants. Most emulsions are also available in powder form. As a result of modern development we also offer water-in-water emulsions to meet future production requirements.
