Pulp & Paper

In the paper industry, fast-acting slimicides for use in water systems and in-can preservatives are needed to protect paper auxiliaries. For special applications, fungicide-treated papers are produced. LANXESS offers a range of suitable products, predominantly with approval for the production of paper with food contact.
