Managing The Impact of White Pitch with Vinyl Acetate Coating Binders
Paper coating binders comprising vinyl acetate are used extensively in North America for their contributions to brightness, opacity, porosity, and stiffness. Besides typical performance properties, new binder selection criteria are emerging in the paper industry emphasizing environmental impact and profit improvement. Today, new vinyl acetate technology has been developed to satisfy the undermet needs of the declining coated paper segment - but there is an enduring fear of white pitch problems.
