Role of surfactants in the paper industry

造纸工业中表面活性剂作用

Paper is made from pulp. Pulp is made from certain plants, such as wood, grass, cotton as raw materials, using chemical or mechanical methods to remove all or most of the impurities, to obtain a pure or nearly pure plant fiber pulp.

Role of surfactants in the paper industry

Pulp in addition to the main component of the composition of the fiber cellulose, but also contains hemicellulose, lignin and a small amount of resin, pigment, gum and other substances. In terms of papermaking, cellulose and hemicellulose is the basic components of pulp, and other impurity components present in the pulp on the quality of paper caused by adverse effects, in the papermaking process should be removed as far as possible, so the formation of paper in the process requires the use of chemical additives. Chemical additives can be divided into two categories of process additives and functional additives, process additives are to promote and improve the efficiency of the paper sheet formation process to prevent fluctuations and interference chemicals, including retention agents, filtering aids, resin control agents, defoamers, molding aids, preservatives, net and felt cleaning agents, etc.; functional additives are to improve the end product performance and quality of chemicals, including dry strength agents, wet strength agents, sizing The functional additives are chemicals to improve the performance and quality of the final product, including dry strength agents, wet strength agents, sizing agents, fillers, dyes, whitening agents, softeners, etc. In the pulp and paper industry, surfactants are widely used as chemical auxiliaries in the process of cooking and pulping, waste paper deinking, paper copying, finishing, paper processing, wastewater treatment, etc., which play an important role in improving the process, improving product quality, increasing economic efficiency and reducing environmental pollution.

For example, surfactants in the cooking pulp as a resin remover and dispersant and wood chips and cotton fiber penetration agent; in the process of manufacturing recycled pulp from waste paper as a waste paper deinking agent; in the paper sizing process as a sizing agent and emulsifier; in the paper copying process as antifoaming agent, felt cleaning agent; in the paper coating as a dispersant, defoamer, lubricant, preservative, antistatic agent, emulsion stabilizer; in the processing of thin paper products as a softener and wetting agent.

Application of special nonionic surfactants in concentrated detergents

In concentrated detergent formulations, the technical challenges of formulation stability are often faced due to the gel compartment of most nonionic surfactants and the limited solubility of anionic surfactants. By exploring two special straight-chain alcohol alkoxylates, EcoSense EP2308 and EP2325, in comparison with AEO-9 and isomeric alcohol ethers in concentrated detergents, it was found that

Multi-Emulsion in cosmetics

Multiple emulsions (W/O/W and O/W/O) are considered to be an ideal cosmetic system that can simultaneously contain multiple active ingredients, is gentle to the skin, and is a dispersion system that is both functional and cosmetic. The unique “three-phase, two-membrane” structure of multiple emulsions makes it possible to simultaneously encapsulate active ingredients of different natures

Cosmetic preservatives

In the cosmetic industry, preservatives are vital additives whose primary function is to limit or prevent the proliferation of microorganisms in a product. The effectiveness of these cosmetic preservatives relies on their reaching the specific concentrations required to inhibit microorganisms and interacting directly with microbial cells. In terms of mechanism of action, preservatives can be
