QUARICOL L50 is a Calcium Stearate based unique Lubricant and Leveling agent for pigment coating ( High Speed operations ) on paper / paperboard where synthetic binder like SBR or Acrylic latex is used.
Colour and appearance : White smooth free flowing liquid
PH : 9 to 11
Solds content : 50 + 2%
Ionicity : Anionic
Main Ingredient : Calcium Stearate
Diluent : Water.
Quaricol L50 gives lubricity and plasticity to both wet and dry coating and hence ensures smooth functioning of High Speed Coating Machine.
Quaricol L50 acts as an efficient Leveling agent also. Spreading of the wet coating on paperboard is achieved instantaneously resulting in uniform distribution of coating ingredients on paperboard. This eliminates the offset printing problems associated with poor distribution of coating ingredients.
The cracking of dry coated film is avoided due to the plasticity imparted to the coating by Quaricol L50.
The problems of dusting during operations like super calendaring, brushing and also in printing are avoided on using Quaricol L50.
