Is MFC compatible with surfactants?

Have you run into problems with incompatibility of the surfactant you would like to use and other ingredients in your formulation? This is a common problem as surfactants are quite versatile in charge, chemical structure and functionality. This could lead to undesired interactions with oppositely charged ingredients.

Improving cleaning products: utilising multifunctionality of cellulose fibrils

Cleaning products at home containes fairly rough abrasives, enabling you to clean off dirt and stains. In the field of cleaning, this is called "agitation" and is part of the C-H-A-T cleaning formula: Chemical-Heat-Agitation-Time. Could this be something for cellulose fibrils? Let's discuss a couple of thoughts on where the cellulose fibrils may give you some functionality.

Stability of Cellulose fibrils — microbial degradation

Cellulose fibrils are most often supplied as readily activated water suspensions. This maintains the product’s performance and makes it easy to incorporate into a formulation. It however brings up questions about the microbial stability of the suspension over time. Is the robustness of Cellulose fibrils enough in this case?

Interior coatings

No viscosity loss upon tinting and excellent sag resistance without sacrificing levelling.

The new to the world solution in the corrugated packaging industry

The demand for speed and quality enhancement within the corrugation industry is increasing, and there is a strong trend to act on the consumers awareness by replacing substances of very high concern. Borregaard’s new Exilva® concepts has proven to deliver on both productivity and sustainability.

Progress in all business areas

Borregaard’s operating revenues reached NOK 1,110 million (NOK 1,034 million)1 in the 4th quarter of 2016. EBITA adjusted2 increased to NOK 160 million (NOK 101 million). Compared with the 4th quarter of 2015, all business areas improved their EBITA adjusted. Currency contributed to higher results. Performance Chemicals increased EBITA adjusted, mainly due to positive currency effects and an improved product mix. Weaker demand and increased price competition in the construction sector were offset by higher sales of speciality products. The improvement in Speciality Cellulose was mainly due to higher sales volume and currency effects. Other Businesses improved results primarily due to higher sales in the Fine Chemicals business and reduc...

All-time high result for the group

Borregaard’s operating revenues were NOK 1,167 million (NOK 1,054 million)1 in the 2nd quarter of 2016. EBITA adjusted2 increased to NOK 200 million (NOK 131 million), an all-time high quarterly result.  Compared with the 2nd quarter of 2015, all business areas improved their EBITA adj. Currency, including hedging effects, contributed positively by approximately NOK 75 million, benefitting all business areas. Energy conservation measures contributed to lower production costs at the Sarpsborg site. Performance Chemicals achieved an all-time high quarterly EBITA adjusted level as positive currency effects and an increased sales volume more than off-set a weaker product mix and slightly lower prices in sales currency. The progress in Speci...
