Surface friction control Harnessing Imerys talc's natural softness to reduce coefficient of friction
Talc is highly lamellar and the softest mineral on the planet, rating 1 on the Mohs hardness scale. This natural property prevents surface friction.
Imerys talcs reduce paper surface friction:
- Eliminating crepe wrinkles and core burst problems
- Preventing breaks during reel changes
- Improving spool tension
- Improving runnability
- Preventing wear and abrasion on reels, cutters and other converting equipment
- Making paperboard easier to fold
They are ideal for the high speeds required by LWC plants.
