Paper, board and packaging
Shaheen provides high value, natural mineral products tailored for every pace of the pulp, paper, and paperboard and printing process. Being the leader in mineral-based products for industrial applications, Shaheen provides an exceptional range of minerals that are essential to paper and board products. Shaheen is at the forefront of technical novelty to meet our customers’ demands. Shaheen’s mineral fillers have a positive impact on drainage, brightness, and opacity of paper. Additionally, they help to optimize manufacturing cost if used as a filler-for-fiber replacement at increased loadings.
High performance in graphic paper
Shaheen offers diverse mineral fillers which are the best suitable choice to sustain paper bulk and diminish overall raw material costs even at high filler levels. Variety of Grounded and coated calcium carbonates are used in the paper production process which is cost-effective filler substitutes for wood fiber where they improve brightness and paper optics. As paper and paperboard coatings, they enhance whiteness and opacity as well as the printability of the finished paper.
Enhancing the machine output in container board
Machine output can be the bottleneck in growing markets like containerboard and folding carton. Adding Shaheen Calcium Carbonate fillers to the production process provides a considerable enhance in output rates. The natural properties of Calcium Carbonate improve drainage which leads to higher line speeds, reduced energy cost, and lower reliance on virgin and recycled fibers. Shaheen mineral fillers features in excellent scattering properties which minimize the white top fiber ply without compromising opacity.
Improving runnability and process efficiency in board process
The dewatering effect of Shaheen fillers such as coated calcium carbonate and talc on the paper web can be used to lessen drying energy or increase line speed. Beside fiber replacement, this allows producers to either produce cost savings or to maximize output. Excellent filler performance and our reliable product supply provide quality assurance in your board manufacturing process. Talc are also ideal coating pigments improving the quality and printability of coated board and to control pitch and stickies which clog machines impacting runnability where it improves runnability and the quality of the finished paper.
Scale Down Production Cost for tissue process
Coated calcium carbonate and talc are mineral fillers exclusively designed for tissue applications. These fillers are superficial as they have a positive impact on tissue softness. It does not impact mechanical properties such as paper strength, bulk, or specific absorption properties. Tissue grades made with Shaheen fillers remain within distinct specifications while benefitting from additional features. The additional dewatering effect of Shaheen fillers can also enable increased production line speed.
Excellent filler performance in packaging industry
Shaheen is a wide-ranging supplier of minerals for stiff and flexible packaging. Our minerals are used in a wide range of products, from containerboard to plastic bags, barrier coatings, sheets and films. Minerals such as talc and calcium carbonates can be used to boost finished product quality, to increase production efficiencies and to help reduce costs. Shaheen minerals also improve resin and fiber extension and the optical and mechanical properties of film and rigid packaging. In certain specialty papers such as colored papers and labels, Shaheen Soapstone improves quality and productivity.
