▷ Biocides for Pulp & Paper

Dec 31, 2023

Pulp and Paper

Efficient pulp operations require effective slime control. Uncontrolled microorganisms, such as slime-forming bacteria, sulfate reducing bacteria, fungi, yeast and algae, are detrimental to paper production. They can cause offensive odors, dangerous gases, equipment corrosion and even spots and breaks in paper.

Our range of biocides help to prevent biofouling and microbially influenced corrosion (MIC), supporting your paper production processes. The benefits are fast and effective microbiological control to minimize equipment failure, unscheduled downtime and quality issues.

You are sure to find the right product for your water quality management needs. Our portfolio contains a broad range of active ingredients, in a variety of concentrations. We are here to help. Contact us for support in selecting suitable biocides for your mill.
