Our tissue technology is your business opportunity

Tissue paper products are an essential part of modern-day life, both at home and in the workplace. With our unique knowledge of pulp, papermaking and converting, BIM is your perfect partner in developing sustainable tissue solutions.

We provide a full range of chemical solutions and services to optimise your performance and value. BIM has over 40 years’ experience of tissue applications. Whatever the problem, we find the solution.

Adding Value and Softness to Tissue

In the modern consumer world, the sensory feeling of tissue is of paramount importance. Therefore, one of the most important quality factors differentiating tissue products is softness or surface feel, particularly for grades such as facial and bathroom tissue. Other functional properties with respect to the grade produced, such as absorbency and strength, are equally important and should not be sacrificed in its pursuit.

An understanding of how to enhance and quantify softness is critical to ensuring these criteria is met. Softness is therefore essential for tissue products and whilst creating softness is hard enough, measuring it can be equally challenging.

BIM can support you to personalise your tissue portfolio. Our products are continually developed to provide further quality enhancement to comply with all required regulatory constraints whilst retaining all other desirable properties. We can tailor make a speciality surface application just for you.

Clean running and operational efficiency have become increasingly important in today’s competitive arena – making more of less! But no two basesheets behave in the same way. We know this and understand that the market demands differentiation.

The maintenance of tissue machine runnability is crucial to ensuring maximised output, reduced rejects and greater conformance to specification. Any unscheduled downtime due to cleaning will interrupt production and prove costly in terms of finished product revenue.

BIM has developed a comprehensive portfolio of process chemistry to ensure maximum machine productivity, including ‘green’ machine hygiene packages, strength agents and deposit control aids.
