Eka Chemicals sizing products significantly increase your efficiency and profitability. Offering both internal and surface-sizing products, we enable you to find the perfect combination to achieve targeted paper properties, cut costs and improving runnability.

Internal sizing - for increased sizing control

Eka Chemicals offers rosin emulsions as well as synthetic sizing agents to suit all internal sizing needs in paper and board production:

  • Eka CR Series - Cationic rosin dispersions
  • Eka DR Series - Alkylketene dimer (AKD) dispersions
  • Eka SA Series - Alkenyl succinic anhydride (ASA)

Surface sizing - for  excellent printability

Surface size protects the base paper from excessive wetting, enhances surface strength and reduces linting and dusting, which, in turn, improves paper printability. Eka Chemicals advanced surface sizing products help you enhance quality without increasing cost.

  • Eka SP Series - Anionic, cationic and amphoteric size press products
