  • Untersuchung von:
    • Eigenschaft: paper
    • Eigenschaft: board
  • Vorteile:
    • Vorteil: measurement of the converting-relevant parameters surface sizing/surface hydrophobia and surface porosity
    • Vorteil: measured parameters help to optimize the converting process and the product quality, for example by adapting the converting process to the quality of the incoming paper or board
    • Vorteil: reliable and accurate test results, which help to solve issues in the converting process and with the product quality, where standard test devices are no help
    • Vorteil: Stand-alone device (connection to a PC and use with emtec PC software possible)
    • Vorteil: small and easy to transport, especially good for chemical suppliers
  • Produktbeschreibung:

    To make sure that the necessary product quality can be reached, specifications are agreed between paper maker and converter. These specifications are bases on standard test devices, such as Cobb or Gurley. But often it happens that although the quality of the base paper or board is within the agreed specifications, issues with the gluability, printability or coating-ability occur during the converting.

    Since gluability, printability and coating-ability mainly depend on surface sizing and surface porosity, information about these two parameters are very important. But the standard test devices are not able to measure them. In comparison to this, the emtec EST is able to measure these two very important surface parameters within the time that is relevant for the converting process and by this helps to ensure a well-running converting process and the right product quality.

    • Vorteil: Module Standard Coating allows measurements with coating color
  • Produktbeschreibung:

    The PDA.C 02 - Module MSC Standard Coating helps to detect changes in base papers, coating colors, and coated papers, which are not detected by standard test devices, but which can lead issues with the coating-ability during the converting process.

    The contact between coating color and base coating paper happens under high shear and pressure pulse, leading to a good simulation of the coating machine applicator.

    Pilot coater and machine trials indicate the effects of coating color and base paper variations. The PDA.C 02 provides a tool to explore the causes.
