Solutions for the Pulp, Paper, Printing, and Converting Market

The pulp, paper, printing & converting industry is a highly competitive business where quality matters. Therefore, not just corrosion and abrasive wear are typical reasons to apply a protective coating to equipment and machinery: other surface properties, like wetting behavior, antifouling and controlled release often matter most, since the coating acts as a functional surface to ensure a high-quality end product with specific characteristics.
