Lauramid® application example: Paper and fibre production
Products in the field of industrial paper production must be resistant to chemical substances and also demonstrate high resistance to abrasion. As a great deal of water is used during the production process, the low level of water absorption is also a basic requirement for materials used for this application. The properties of Lauramid® meet all these demands.
The illustrated examples of Lauramid® components which are already used in the paper and fibre production industry are a stirring propeller for stirring paper pulp, a large paper cylinder and a consistency gauge
