Fascinating and versatile
Voith is heavily involved in the production of specialty papers and for decades has been developing new technologies and products to enable its more efficient and higher quality manufacture.
Décor paper is characterized by good dimensional stability and a vey high level of opacity. It is designed for hard stresses and impregnation. The single-sided smoothness provides for good printability.
Use: furniture surfaces, laminate, interior finishing of building and vehicles, etc.
Thermo paper reacts to the action of heat by means of a thermosensitive layer. The contact points turn black in the process.
Use: e.g., bank statements, sales receipts, admission tickets, luggage labels, etc.
Label paper has a one-sided adhesive coat. It is characterized by its low basis weight, high coat weight and good printability. Release paper serves as base paper for label paper. It is silicon-coated and very smooth.
Use: address labels, product labels, price tags, etc.
Banknote paper is very durable, aging-resistant and forgery-proof paper with integrated security features such as inserted metal filaments. The paper consists of cotton fibers and is dirt-repellent and waterproof.
Use: for currency
Masking tape consists of paper with a self-adhesive coating on the back. It has a high level of linear expansion and can be easily torn.
Use: as protection against splashes of color or paint in renovation or painting activities
The technology for production of wet laid nonwovens comes from paper manufacturing and is not just for production of wet laid nonwovens but also for production of long-fiber paper. Wet laid nonwovens are made of long fibers up to 40 mm long on an inclined wire machine.
Use: tea bags, textile wet laid nonwovens for the medical and hygiene industry, gasoline filters, glass nonwovens, wallpaper, overlay paper, etc.
Cigarette paper is very light, taste- and odor-neutral and food safe. There are high technological requirements for this paper regarding porosity, opacity and printability. Cigarette paper is divided into three categories:
- Plug wrap paper
- Tipping paper
- Cigarette paper
Use: cigarette industry
