Organic contaminants originate from natural or synthetic sources depending whether the problem is concerning wood pitch or adhesives and coating binders from secondary fibres or broken (stickies).

They can deposit throughout the stock preparation and headbox on forming fabrics, press rolls and on other machines surfaces. Pitch and stickies increase the breakages, reduce the end product quality, and facilitate the slime deposition.

Acquaflex can provide a complete range of chemicals (vegetable solvents in water solutions) that drastically reduce the adhesive properties of pitches and stickies allowing easy disposal with the waste water.
