Wet Strength Resins—a Packaging Solution That Sticks...

Whether you are a business that offers products to customers or you are a consumer who purchases products, if you’ve ever received goods in a box, you’ve come in contact with wet strength resins. These resins help make paper and paperboard more durable and water resistant. They are widely used in the corrugated industry to enhance the durability of boxes and containers, and they add strength to tissue, paper towel and other paper products. How Resins Work Resins are liquid plastics. They are applied wet and harden as they set. Drying time can take anywhere from 4-6 hours, but once they dry, they are solid and extremely durable. wet strength resins are added to starch adhesives used in the production of corrugated boxes and containers. When a corrugated box is made, the heat of the corrugating machine helps the resins to set, providing the adhesive with a water-resistant shield. This makes the box stronger and resistant to cold and humidity. Three Levels of Wet Strength for Corrugated Boxes The higher the level of resin used in a product, the more water-resistant it becomes. Products can be made to keep simply moisture out, or they can be designed to be fully waterproof.  * MRA (Moisture Resistant Adhesive) — this is the lowest level of wet strength, used to pack products that will not be exposed to water or humidity.  * WRA (Water Resistant Adhesive) — the mid-level of wet strength is most commonly used by packaging manufacturers. This level is ideal to ensure that boxes remain strong in all shipping and storing conditions and that the adhesive does not come unglued due to moisture.  * WPA (Water Proof Adhesive) — the highest level of adhesive is primarily used in products that cannot come into contact...

Natural Carbonation or Forced Carbonation? Apr20

Natural Carbonation or Forced Carbonation?...

Beer connoisseurs will concur, the light sting of carbonation on the tongue is a major part of the appeal in a fine quality beer. There are two methods used to achieve the optimum beer carbonation in these beverages and they are natural carbonation and forced carbonation. Achieving the perfect balance is required to avoid production of a flat beer or over-carbonated bottles that explode when you open them.

The yeast action is stimulated by the sugar. CO2 is released during the yeast action and dispersed through the beer. Pros and Cons of Natural Beer Carbonation This process can be less expensive than forced carbonation methods. The appearance of the beer is not as attractive as the forced method as a layer of yeast will still lie on the bottom of the container. The head is richer, and for better or worse, there is generally more of a yeast flavor to naturally carbonated beer. This can be a plus if you enjoy the flavor and a con if you don’t. Forced Beer Carbonation This method requires beer to be placed into a container with the high pressure addition of CO2. The CO2 absorbs into the liquid quickly and the containers are sealed. Pros and Cons of Forced Carbonation Most breweries prefer this method of beer carbonation. It allows for a faster turnaround time for production and for a cleaner and clearer product. There is no yeast remaining in the bottom of the bottle. The flavor does not have the sting of yeast as found in beer carbonated with the natural method. This method produces a more attractive beer...
