Argirec For improved viscosity and adhesion in PVA adhesives for high-speed paper lamination and cardboards

  • Improved viscosity and shelf life
  • Good grab and green strength
  • Durable bond between paper substrates

Our Argirec kaolin product is ideal for water-based adhesives such as polyvinyl alcohol used in high speed paper lamination for the production of graphic cardboard and corrugated board.

Argirec B24: 

  • Provides the right rheology profile fostering low adhesive use per g/m2 to create adhesion 
  • Gives stable viscosity profile over a longer period of time ( good shelf life)
  • Confers the correct balance between dosing concentration and viscosity level
  • Provides kaolin color which is compatible with the color of test liner and craft liner paper substrates
  • Is very suitable for ‘ high viscosity’ water-based adhesives due to its high surface area and very fine particles
  • Provides a good initial grab and green strength
  • Provides durable bond between paper substrates with a defined quality in both low and high hydrolyzed polyvinyl alcohols

We recommend our Argirec B24 grade for adhesives.

We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
