Tissue & Towel

Tissue and towel industry

GP Chemicals has supplied the tissue and towel market for many years with quality wet strength resins and crepe aids to help our paper customers improve their facial tissues; napkins; sanitary grades; and towel grades. Constantly developing new products and improving on existing products, our record as a reliable supplier has made us a leader in the tissue and towel industry.

But we are not resting on our laurels. Our latest innovation is the Navigator® line of products and services formulated for Yankee Dryers. These products are designed to meet a customer’s machine and operating environment based on a technical audit that assesses machine variables and their effect on the Yankee Dryer and the end-product.

The portfolio includes coating packages for the evolving trend toward rapidly changing paper machine operating conditions and sheet specifications. The new coating formulations were developed to meet the higher operating temperature demands placed on standard paper machines as well as the lower reel moisture targets required to compete in high end tissue and towel markets.

In addition to products for Through Air Dryer (TAD) and structured fabric machines, the Navigator line includes coatings and release agents, softeners and debonders designed for the tissue and fluff pulp markets.
