Specialty Paper & Packaging

Microbial contamination of paper leads to an unaesthetic presentation of the paper product. On top, some types of fungi can cause human health issues, including respiratory infection and immunological disorders.

Fungicides prevent mold development and protect the packaging during its whole life span.

At the beginning of 2021, LANXESS acquired Intace SAS, a Paris-based biocide company that formulates specialty fungicides for the protection of paper and paper board. The formulations complete our portfolio for specialty paper & packaging.

LANXESS customers can choose from a broad range of fungicidal substances to protect paper and cardboard for special paper and packaging applications.
