Household & Cleaning Solutions #WACKER LIOSIL® Tissue additives – Making Tissues soft and functional

EUROPE (BURGHAUSEN)
Webinar | Distributors

Description

This training will enable you to better understand the “tissue language” spoken from tissue producers and to know what WACKER can offer for the tissue industry. This will support you to better promote successfully our LIOSIL® TS additives.

The term tissue covers products such as toilet paper, handkerchiefs, kitchen towels, napkins, paper towels and facial tissues. All these articles of daily use must meet the highest expectations from customers. Tissue products are expected to be soft, cheap, tear resistance, hygienic and are supposed to combine all this with a nice sensorial profile.

To enable tissue producers to achieve all these characteristics, additives are added during and after the production process. WACKER offers under the trade name LIOSIL® TS products, which allows exactly to yield this multi – functionality. Our products are especially well suited to improve the softness and sensorial profile of tissue products. Applying even a small amount of these yields a noticeable improvement in the properties of sanitary paper products.

In this basic training we will introduce you to all aspects of the tissue industry.

  • What are tissue products, what are the performance characteristics and how are tissues manufactured?
  • Which tissue additives are offered from WACKER and where are they added in the manufacturing process?
  • How do we test at WACKER the performance of tissue products in our labs?
  • What are the regulatory requirements which have to be meet?
