Tissue paper Imerys talc, a cost-effective, eco-friendly solution for cleaner pulp, softer tissue paper and higher production levels

Imerys cationic talc makes an excellent, environmentally friendly pitch and stickies control agent in tissue paper production while keeping ash levels to a strict minimum.

The softest mineral in the world (1 on the Mohs hardness scale) talc is ideal for tissue paper applications.

Imerys talc:

  • Neutralizes pitch and stickies, improving productivity by reducing cleaning time and machine downtime
  • Lowers anionic trash
  • Minimizes ash
  • Makes paper softer and smoother - even under compression 
  • Improves paper release at Yankee cylinder
  • Is an environment friendly, cost-effective alternative to chemicals


We particularly recommend our cationized Mistron® product range for this application (loading levels lower than 1%), which will limit ash content increase, without significantly impacting essential tissue paper properties. 

We offer a full range technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
