Further Applications

Our broad product portfolio is used for more applications than the three technical core sectors plastics, construction and lubricants. For example, our products are important additives for the rubber industry and the paper industry.

Peter Greven – Your partner for rubber additives

Oleochemical additives are required for the rubber industry.

Due to their outstanding separating properties and their good compatibility with rubber, metallic soaps and dispersions are used as separating agents. Additionally, they act as vulcanisation aid and glidant.

Besides metallic soaps special stearic acids, glycerine and additive mixtures can be used as processing aids in order to guarantee a stable production flow.

Our brands for the rubber industry

LIGAFLUID® and LIGASTAR®

Application areas

Our additives can be used in different rubber types, such as

  • styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR)
  • poly-butadiene rubber (PBR)
  • ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM)
  • medical rubber products (for example blood bags, infusion hoses).
     

Peter Greven – Your partner for paper additives

The application of our products in the paper industry is divided into two areas: paper coating and deinking.

Paper Coating

Our products are used as coating colour lubricants during the coating of paper. They facilitate the processing procedures during and after the paper coating. The high processing speeds during production and the demand for a smooth process set high standards for the additives used.

Metallic soap dispersions are the main additives for paper coating. Dependent on the application alkaline soaps may also be suitable.

Due to the special requirements our product portfolio contains products which were customised for this application. Therefore, they can:

  • facilitate the processing procedure during and after paper coating.
  • prevent the coating colour from sticking to the calendar roll.
  • act as hydrophobing agent and limit the foam development.
  • improve the shine and smoothness of the papers. 

Our brand for paper coating

LIGAFLUID®

Application areas

Our LIGAFLUID® coating colour lubricants can be used during the production of different coated papers like for example

  • high gloss and catalog papers
  • thermal papers
  • food papers.
     

Deinking

Recycling is an overall present subject and still gaining in importance. Within the paper industry the extraction of pulp from waste paper is the major contribution to recycling. The main focus during  paper retreatment are the preservation of the feedstock as well as the best possible minimization of the environmental impact.

Deinking is the part of the recycling process that removes ink from the paper fibres. The mainly used process for this is called flotation process and the additives used to remove the ink from the paper are also known as collector chemicals.

Our SERFAX® brand is especially designed for the deinking process and offers soaps, fatty acids and liquid products which ensure efficient ink removal while simultaneously guaranteeing optimum fibre yield.

Our brand for deinking

LIGASERFAX®

Application areas

Our SERFAX® products are used for flotation deinking for:

  • toilet paper
  • office paper
  • newsprint paper
  • magazine paper
  • corrugated board
  • handkerchiefs

within the recycling process.
