cationic rosin

Cationic rosin emulsion is an effective sizing agent for paper. Acid-fortified rosin is reacted with a water soluble salt of Alkylene-Acrylic acid Copolymer to form rosin soap. The rosin soap is emulsified with water under high shearing conditions to provide a modified Cationic Rosin Emulsion.

Benefits of Cationic Rosin:

1. Reduces Cost of Paper Making – Cationic Rosin reduces the consumption of additives like Alum (Aluminium Sulfate) thus lowering the cost of paper making.

2. Improves Quality of Paper – Lowering the consumption of Alum, paper sized with Cationic Rosin undergoes minimal acid tendering thereby increasing whiteness and life of Paper.

3. Reduces Environmental Pollution – Cationic Rosin is used for sizing under neutral conditions (pH range of 4.5 to 6.5) thereby reducing the discharge of acidic sewage. It reduces the build-up of Sulfate ions from Alum in the white water system, reducing the quantity of white water required to be bled off from the system.
