PMP’s PSF Technology is aimed to generate cost savings and to increases profitability in paper making.

pmp logo 2016The Paper Surface Functionality (PSF) concept was developed to support paper mills in improving the useful properties of paper or board. Combinations of various layers of barrier chemicals, coating colors and starches can be applied in a purposeful and selected sequence on the paper or board surface and in controlled amounts. PSF Technology utilizes a special spraying application technology and has an advanced process design for feeding and re-circulating the flow of material to the surface treatment units.

PMP is developing the concept in close co-operation with Patrick Sundholm Ltd Oy. Pilot equipment is installed on a state-of-the-art pilot coater in KCL research plant in Otaniemi, Finland. Furthermore, a cylindrical laboratory coater (CLC) enabling pre-trials has been installed by KCL.

The technology can be implemented as retrofits in existing paper machines or off line coaters.

The pilot is a platform for developing enhanced and new paper and board grades. The trials are run with the clients in accordance with strict confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements.
