paper industry Overview

Putting our best solutions on paper

From paper machine rolls to doctor blades on dryer drums to press and anilox rolls, protect your most critical components from abrasive wear and corrosion while improving the quality of each sheet of paper, board, tissue and towel.

Our chromium and tungsten carbide coatings help you retain surface finish, smoothness and gloss while extending roll life of machine calender, soft calender and supercalender rolls. Our ceramic coatings reduce corrosion, wear and static buildup on center press and wire and dryer felt rolls. Whatever the issue, we’ll work directly with you to find the best, most cost-effective solution for your business.
