WESCOTE®-C Trial and Results

Objective:

Replace Cationic PVOH with Cationic Wescote® resulting in equivalent quality and improved costs.

  • Lab work was performed using cationic PVOH as the control. A cationic Wescote® of equivalent viscosity was trialed. The two papers were then passed through several inkjet printers to evaluate.
Results:
  • The trial paper was deemed equal to or better than the control.
  • A premium inkjet sheet was purchased on the market and compared to the test sheet. The inkjet print quality was deemed equal to the premium inkjet sheet.
  • Wescote® offers a large cost savings vs. PVOH.
