Kurita Giluton - Wet Strength Agents for Wallpaper, Packaging and Filter Papers
For more than three decades Kurita has established a leading position in the European market for wet strength additives. Our GILUTON wet strength resins are based on polyamidoamine-epichlorohydrin (PAAE) chemistry and are primarily applied under neutral to slightly alkaline conditions.
A PAAE resin supports:
- wet strength
- fines and filler retention
- trash fixation
- performance of other additives, e.g. wet end sizing
- creping at the Yankee cylinder (tissue)
- dry strength
- system charge balance
Our strong commitment to R&D has led to an advanced portfolio fulfilling the needs of particular applications and meeting the requirements of BfR (Bundesinstitut für Risikoanalyse), FDA and China GB 9685-2008-Standard. Furthermore the majority of our portfolio complies with the requirements of the RAL-Umweltzeichen, the Nordic Swan- and the EU Ecolabel.
