TopChim signs agreement with Mondi Business Paper to supply its nano-hybrid technology, NanoTope, to develop and produce groundbreaking innovative paper.
First time application of nano-hybrid technology for paper production
After five years of intensive nanotechnology research and development, TopChim nv is introducing a revolutionary innovation, NanoTope, in coating pigments for the paper industry and signed a contract with Mondi Business Paper for the exclusive development of its newest neox paper.
Nano-hybrid technology makes it possible
For the first time TopChim's patented nano-hybrid technology, NanoTope is being used in paper production surface treatment. This new technology creates a smooth, homogenous, nano-structured paper surface. This makes Mondi Business Paper's neox uniquely versatile: it unites the gloss and smooth surface feel of a coated paper with the high whiteness and stiffness expected of a quality uncoated paper.
"By utilising nano-hybrid technology, developed by TopChim nv, we have achieved a breakthrough in production of pigments on nano-scale for coatings to produce colour laser printing paper. It is a paper more versatile than anything on the market to date," explained Günther Hassler, CEO of Mondi Business Paper. "We have succeeded in combining the advantages of coated and uncoated paper in one sheet. neox is like nothing the paper world has seen before."
A technology driven innovation
Finding new solutions for growing demands and thereby improving paper surface and its properties is at the core of all the research efforts the company does. NanoTope is a result of TopChim's consistent drive for innovation in collaboration with paper producing companies like Mondi Business Paper.
"A vision in paper coating has focused our efforts as a research company, on developing innovations that ensure our competitiveness in the field of cutting edge nanotechnology. For more than two years, our research team and the Competence Center for Innovation of Mondi Business paper have been working on the development of neox," commented Henk Van den Abbeele, R&D director and founder of TopChim. "This mutual agreement covers one of the first industrial roll-outs of our successful inventions in nanotechnology. TopChim's objective is to introduce its nanotechnology in a variety of surface performance applications, including innovative barrier coatings for packaging, printing inks and textile treatment" says Eric Jönsson, CEO of TopChim..
NanoTope is manufactured in Belgium.
TopChim, based in Belgium and operating worldwide, is a research company focused on innovation for the paper coating industry. 10 years of knowledge in coating applications result today in a unique expertise for coating rheology, barrier coatings and printability improvement. The research efforts of TopChim’s Nanoscience department results today in the production of Nano hybrid pigments on industrial scale.
The MONDI Group operates internationally in the business paper and packaging industries. Together the subsidiaries MONDI BUSINESS PAPER and MONDI PACKAGING employ roughly 37,000 people at 100 production sites in 30 countries. Active in the areas of pulp and paper production and forestry, MONDI BUSINESS PAPER is one of the leading international producers of high quality business paper.
