Archroma enters into license agreement with Igcar

Specialty chemicals producer Archroma has entered into a license agreement with Igcar, a Spain-based group producing optical brighteners for the paper, textile, detergent and coatings industry.

According to an Archroma press release, the agreement provides Igcar with access to Archroma's patented 'improved optical brightening compositions' technology.

The Optical Brightening Agent (OBA) technology developed by Archroma combines magnesium salts with optical brighteners.

“Papers treated with the patented process show enhanced brightness and whiteness levels, offering consumers a more pleasurable writing and printing experience,” the company observed.

“The patent covers mixed salts of most of the common paper optical brighteners with magnesium cations,” Archroma said.

Valerie Diele-Braun, president paper solutions at Archroma, said, “Archroma strives to offer innovation to our customers and partners.”

“The license agreements announced recognise the value that our innovations add to paper to benefit paper makers and end-users whilst protecting our property rights,” he too added.

Archroma also said that it has recently issued 'cease and desist' orders to several OBA suppliers whose products have been shown by independent analysis to infringe its proprietary technology. (AR)
