DEKA Technical Information

The fine particle size of ink particles is one of the main causes for the traditionally poor deinking response of recycled paper.  Due to the high hydrophobicity of the modified kaolin particles and their relatively larger particle size, the modified kaolin acts as a collector for these fine ink particles and results in improving the deinking process. Adding the modified kaolin with a deinking surfactant produces a deinking reagent that gives more efficient separation and removal of the ink particles from the recycled paper fibers.
