BILTREAT C is Calcium Stearate dispersion for use in starch, casein or latex coatings. It improves the application of coatings and imparts a better finish to coated paper. Among its outstanding features are its economy and ease of use.
By lubricating the coating, BILTREAT C dispersion improves flow and leveling characteristics, making possible, smooth and even application. It also reduces cracking of the dry coating and improves its printability and appearance. Surface is glossier and has a smooth feel.
Unlike most calcium stearate dispersion, BILTREAT C has very little effect on the viscosity of most coatings. This allows the utilization of slightly higher solid coatings, thus realizing a lower, load on drying equipment. At the same time, a greater coating weight is achievable with the same equipment as it is ordinarily used. BILTREAT C dispersion prevents dusting at the supercalenders and during slitting the printing operations. In certain grades of paper, super calendering can be omitted, since BILTREAT C dispersion will give a high finish with machine calenders alone.
