  • Publication number: 20100184902
    Abstract: An improved creping adhesive is prepared by first reacting a dibasic carboxylic acid, or its ester, half-ester, or anhydride derivative, with a polyalkylene polyamine, preferably in aqueous solution, under conditions suitable to produce a water soluble polyamide. The water-soluble polyamide is then reacted with an epihalohydrin until substantially fully cross-linked, and stabilized by acidification with phosphoric acid at the end of the polymerization reaction to form a water-soluble poly(aminoamide)-epihalohydrin creping adhesive that is re-wetable and facilitates water spray removal of buildup so as to lengthen the life of the creping blades, with attendant significant decrease in downtime and maintenance.

  • Publication number: 20040211534
    Abstract: A method for creping a paper web includes applying, separately or together, to a surface of a rotatable creping cylinder, a creping adhesive and at least one creping adhesive modifier which is a polyoxyalkylene resin possessing repeating oxyalkylene groups containing at least 3 carbon atoms. The method further includes the steps of adhering a paper web to the surface of the creping cylinder and removing the paper web from the creping cylinder with a doctor blade to provide a creped paper product.

  • Publication number: 20020096280
    Abstract: New and improved methods and products are disclosed relating to increasing the softness of paper sheets, without effecting their wetability. Increased softness, without loss of wetability is obtained by adding ketene dimer sizing agents and a surface active agent to mask the sizing of the sheet.
