Publication Grades Paper and Packaging

When it comes to catalogs, magazines and marketing materials, the paper must showcase featured products or stories in the best fashion possible. OMNOVA produces a wide breadth of chemistries to enhance the overall performance of publication grade papers. We offer robust coating binders to improve the strength of the sheet and impart dimensional stability, as well as products that provide a smooth and level surface and high gloss. Our portfolio also boasts chemistries that enhance the performance of ink on the paper’s surface.

Reduce water solubility and sensitivity of the coating by crosslinking binder systems. Improve print definition and prevent "milking" and "piling" for proper ink transfer by preventing accumulation of the paper coating on the blanket.

Sizing Agents

Promote water holdout, enabling inks and toners to dry on the surface rather than being absorbed into the sheet or board.
