Effective Solutions for the Paper and Board Industry

With our paper laboratory, we support you in all questions concerning functionality, application, formulation and product development. At the same time, we are available as a partner for process engineering tasks. For example, we advise and support you in questions concerning dosing and conveying technology and offer efficient, practical solutions with our partner networks.

ARBOCEL® - Functional Process Fibers and Pulp

Your advantages with  ARBOCEL®:

  • Cost reduction by saving energy and raw materials
  • Better drainage
  • Increase in machine speed / productivity increase
  • Increase in thickness or specific volume
  • Improvement of the formation and the cross profile

Straw Pulps

Our straw pulps based on wheat straw are the sustainable  alternative to conventional wood pulp, therefore increases in strength are possible. 

Available as bleached (TCF) and unbleached.

The Innovation in the fine cellulose sector:

The enormous cost pressure and the existing high quality demands on coated papers have prompted us to develop a novel coating additive based on ultra-fine cellulose.

Your advantages when using ARBOCEL® UFC in the coating formulation:

  • Savings in binder and co-binder due to reduced penetration of the coating color into the base paper 
  • Reduction of drying costs due to higher solids content
  • Better Coating Holdout
  • Optimized printability


Our plant based hydrocolloids can be used as bio-based film formers and coating additives with barrier properties.

Product Porfolio:

  • Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC as Tylose alternative)
  • Alginates
  • Microcristalline cellulose gels (MCG)
  • Pectins

ARBOCEL ® PLUS – Fiber-Bonded Paper Additives

What is behind the idea of ARBOCEL® Plus?
The paper industry uses a wide variety of additives. These chemicals have many functions and a wide range of applications.

Main problems of all paper technoloy additives:
Distribution, retention and interactions.

Our technological approach:
Fixation of additives to ARBOCEL® fibers as carrier material. This takes place outside paper production. These modified fibers are added in the stock preparation (wet end).


  • Very good retention
  • Can be used in the entire, usual pH value and temperature range
  • No influence on the zeta potential
  • Long shelf life / no risk of frost


  • ARBOCEL® PLUS STRENGTH as strength additive
  • ARBOCEL® PLUS AKD as sizing additive
  • ARBOCEL® PLUS FC for oil/grease resistance
