Paper Coatings

Paper coatings impart a variety of properties, both decorative (whiteness, opacity, etc.) and functional (smoothness, absorption rate, etc.). A typical coating has two principal constituents: a dispersion of pigments in water and an adhesive or binder. Other ingredients include talc, silica, titanium dioxide and resins.

Completely dispersing these materials to give an agglomerate-free end product is essential to the manufacturing process. Silverson high shear mixers can rapidly deagglomerate a coating mix; typically an In-Line mixer would be added to the slurry handling system prior to the coating unit. Silverson mixers are also used to recirculate the coating to accelerate the dispersion process. For more specific application information, please see the report below.
