Surface Sizing


Surface strength leads you to levels where your wet end programme ends.



Surface sizing is a traditional tool to apply sizing aids, but beyond that even more to introduce strength properties to the paper. Strength can be basically achieved by wet end treatment; however, in some cases it is necessary to provide additional strength via surface treatment.


Bring your strength to your surface.

CMC improves the performance of surface treatment either as sole addition chemical or in combination with other natural or synthetic binders. Applications with CMC solely are also possible even at low concentration levels. 

Main advantages using CMC in sizing:

surface strength

barrier function: resistant to oil, grease and organic substances

chemical synergy: more efficient chemical usage

good runnability and productivity: continuous drying, prevents curling

printability: improves printing process and results


The key point is to take advantage of the increased tensile and utilise the possible benefits. 

We offer you our Niklacell CMC grades for your specific requirements. Our target is to provide you a technical and cost effective solution.
