MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Feb. 23, 2010 (Press Release) -

At Tissue World Americas Mar. 24-26, 2010, in Miami, Fla., Cargill will feature HemiForce® enhanced fiber additives. Sourced from renewable agricultural seed fibers and made using a totally chlorine-free (TCF) process, the product line presents an alternative to chemicals for achieving the paper properties so valued by consumers.

Visitors to Cargill booth #1138 will have the opportunity to talk to Cargill specialists about how HemiForce® enhanced fiber additives' high hemicelluloses structure increases fiber-to-fiber bonding, which may enhance the strength of the tissue sheet. This can help papermakers optimize raw material selection, improve paper machine productivity, minimize refining requirements, reduce wet end chemical usage and lower overall manufacturing costs, with a net financial impact verified at up to $8 per ton for tissue and towel producers.

"With HemiForce® enhanced fiber additives, papermakers can run manufacturing lines at higher speeds without worrying about downtime. They can use less expensive grades of pulp or increase filler loading and still maintain quality specifications," said Bill Boyden, general manager. "It's a great option for papermakers who wish to use more recycled content because a reduction in refining may add additional benefits for increased bulk and improved softness in all tissue grades."

HemiForce® enhanced fiber additives do not require any capital investment in new equipment or training. The products can be added at many optional stages in the stock preparation system or wet end of the paper machine with the same increased strength result.
