Webinars
Evaluation of LLDPE Sealants and Structures for Ultrasonic Sealing

Ultrasonic sealing is an emerging technology that offers potential cost savings to flexible packaging converters through increased line speeds, narrower seals and reduced leakers. Most polyethylenes, coextruded films or laminates that can be conductive or heat sealed can also be ultrasonically welded. However, the mechanical forces required in ultrasonic sealing can weaken films.

Binders - Latex Introduction to Emulsion Polymerization

This Webinar was hosted by the TAPPI Nonwovens Engineers & Technologists Division and Binders & Additives Committee on March 22, 2012. The presenter is Mark Yanutola with the Omnova Performance Chemicals Division.

Webinars
Microbes in Papermaking: Do You Have a Problem

Microorganisms can thrive in papermaking systems when water, cellulose, starch, furnish and other additives combined at favorable pH and warm temperatures.

Webinars
Combat Process Disturbances and PID Loop Interactions

PID loop interactions and process disturbances are a leading source of process variability and instability in all processes. This webinar shows you how to employ new tools to easily obtain the effects of interaction and disturbances on your process (the models) and how to use these to break or eliminate loop interactions and the effects of disturbances.

Webinars
Why Filtered Whitewater Systems Fail

This webinar explains why paper machine whitewater filtration systems are often problematic and in some cases fail. The presentation shows how controlling variability in your whitewater system can help save energy, reduce fresh water consumption and improve product variability.

Webinars
What Nonwovens Manufactures Need to know about Formaldehyde

Maureen Nunn is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a graduate degree from Georgetown in Organic Chemistry. She has over 30 years in product development in a large number of applications such as automotive finishes, pulp and paper, water treatment, adhesives, and textile nonwovens.

Paper Machine Vacuum Systems

This webinar is brought to you by the TAPPI Papermakers Committee and the Water Removal Committee.

Webinars
Corona and Plasma Surface Treatments The Opportunities

This webinar addresses the roots of surface treatment challenges for polymeric, metallic, and composite materials, and identifies the corona and plasma treatment mechanisms which overcome those challenges. Corona discharges and Atmospheric pressure plasmas are valuable tools for the surface treatment of materials prior to printing, laminating, coating, painting, bonding, and other applications.

Webinars
Microbes in Fresh and Recycled Water Systems

Linda Robertson started her career in the paper industry in 1974 at Weyerhaeuser as a microbiologist/microscopist, moving to Nalco’s Paper R&D group in 1988 and joining Nalco’s Worldwide Technical Support in 1996 as Principal Consultant.

This webinar was hosted by the TAPPI Papermakers & Water Removal Committees on September 28, 2010.

Webinars
Increasing Paper Machine Agility with a Novel Grade Change Concept

A narrow grade mix and long grade runs were once common. Not today. Most machines make a wider set of products with many grade changes.

Webinars
VPA and New Indices for Quantifying and Troubleshooting Sheet Quality

Sheet properties measured both on-line and off-line are often expressed in arrays of values called "profiles" in cross-machine direction (CD) and "trends" in machine direction (MD).  With the computing power, memory capacity, and display technology available in today's quality control and mill-wide systems, a new set of indices and two-dimensional analysis methods can be useful for better quantifying sheet quality and provide more insights for troubleshooting sheet-making processes.

Improving Sustainability with QCS Life Cycle Management

Since inception, Quality Control Systems (QCS) have played an integral role in the quality and efficiency of the paper industry. However, there are instances when needed capital dollars for upgrades are just not available. Agility is therefore required to sustain the life of the QCS while maintaining or improving profitability.
