New edition of our AROSURF® product portfolio

A new brochure about our AROSURF® product portfolio is now available.

Our product range covers a variety of products with specific application profiles, which address almost all needs of the tissue and fluff pulp industry: softeners and debonders under the AROSURF®, VARISOFT®, and REWOQUAT® trade names as well as softeners and pulp and paper defoamers
under the TEGOPREN® trade name.

Properties of our AROSURF® softeners and debonders are:

  • Highly substantive wet end softener/ debonders with high, medium and low debonding effect for premium to low sheet bulkiness with all qualities of feedstocks
  • Highly substantive softeners with low impact on tensile strength to achieve good machine runnability and excellent surface smoothness of the tissue
  • Substantive or non-substantive softeners for topical application on the sheet before the dryer combining moderate bulkiness with good surface softness of the tissue
  • Concentrates for converting softeners/lotions

Most of our products are food contact compliant (FDA and/or BfR) or INCI listed (cosmetic ingredients).
