POSITEK™ Technology Helps Customer Meet Their Production Goals

May 12, 2014

POSITEK 3G is the latest generation in Nalco microparticle program technology that delivers value to customers. This program is designed to promote drainage and retention without causing any negative effects caused by overflocculation. This technology is a colloidal silica dispersion that is specifically structured to enhance drainage in a controllable manner and increase the retention of filler and fiber fines. 

As a result of this program implementation, Nalco helped this customer improve drainage in the forming and press sections, and the speed of the machine improved by 5%. Additionally, Silica usage was reduced by 25%. Overall formation and machine runnability was also unaffected during the trial period.
