Cartaspers ® PSM:

Cleaner, faster, for longer

Cartaspers PSM helps the papermakers to enhance the performance and the sustainability of their production processes. Stickie contamination of machinery is minimized, practically eliminating down time for cleaning. Solvent usage, for dissolving and removing the contamination, can be reduced by up to 90%.

Cartaspers PSM was designed by Clariant for control of “stickies” in the papermaking process (e.g. tissue). “Stickies” are contaminants such as latex, adhesives, pitch and resins, inherent in wastepaper as a raw material. Such “sticky” particles have a natural affinity for synthetic wires and felts on papermaking equipment.

Keeping the paper- and board-making machinery free of such contamination is not an easy task and longer periods of downtime may be necessary to facilitate thorough cleaning, typically employing large quantities of volatile and flammable solvents.

Cartaspers PSM is a nonionic, readily biodegradable (OECD 301A 97% – 28 days), hydrophilic polymer with high affinity for hydrophobic surfaces. The product is a water-based polyester dispersion, with the ability to modify the surface energy of non-polar substances.

This patented product is applied to machine clothing in the form of a diluted solution. Added continuously to the shower water, the fabric monofilaments are encapsulated by a “protective hydrophilic polymer layer”. On each revolution of the papermaking fabric, the contamination is easily washed away and a fresh layer of product applied.

The unique chemistry of the product, with its low foaming tendency and minimal effect on other papermaking additives, is far more effective than conventional surfactants or hydrophilic polymers such as polyvinylalcohol, carboxy- methylcellulose or hydroxyethylcellulose.

The nonionic nature of Cartaspers PSM liquid ensures com- patibility with a wide variety of anionic and cationic additives commonly encountered. Hard water and the presence of multivalent cations do not affect the performance of the product.
