Nalco & German Evonik expand strategic relationship for tissue makers

Nalco Company & and Evonik's Goldschmidt Industrial Specialties have expanded their agreement for Nalco to be the exclusive distributor of Evonik's tissue additives in Central and South America.

Tissue is a low-weight, thin paper often used to make facial and bathroom tissue. Softness and absorbency are critical factors for end-user satisfaction. Tissue makers need to achieve that consumer expectation with an efficient manufacturing process that effectively combines the fiber, water and energy needed to make the tissue. Evonik additives include softeners and debonders that help achieve the appropriate softness levels for the end use.

"We continue to focus on delivering our customers innovative and sustainable solutions in all geographies of the world. Building on our successful partnership in North America and Europe, we are very excited to extend our relationship with Evonik into Central and South America," said Stuart Passantino, Global Strategic Business Leader for Tissue and Towel Grades for Nalco. "Nalco's on-site expertise, coupled with Evonik's broad softener product line, helps our customers improve sheet properties and is a proven partnership of success."

Yvonne Deac, Global Marketing Manager Textile/Tissue for Evonik added, "This unique combination of Nalco's powerful chemical, mechanical and operational background plus innovation and mill service has already been delivering value-added solutions to customers in other regions over the past few years. Now we will bring this successful approach to Central and South America where tissue producers and mills can now benefit from our specialty product range. This includes our well-known tissue wet-end and topical softener and softener/debonder brands AROSURF PA, VARISOFT, Z-QUAT, REWOQUAT and TEGOPREN, now complemented with Nalco's mechanical, operational and chemical approach."
