Project Role

The role of SurA Chemicals GmbH within the project is to support in development, modification and characterization of the hybrid materials as well as the cellulosic materials. By tailor-made hydrophobizing of the materials, a temporary water resistance of the mulch paper can be achieved and, consequently, an increased stability of the mulch paper during the utilization can be reached.
Moreover, SurA Chemicals GmbH will develop methods for the incorporation of cellulosic materials into the hybrid coating systems. The characterization and tests of the coatings and papers will be performed as well.
The most promising systems will be tested in large scale. For this, SurA Chemicals GmbH will provide the necessary coating materials in the appropriate quantities.

  • Development, modification and characterization of coating materials
  • Hydrophobizing of materials to enhance water resistance
  • Method development for the incorporation of cellulose in coating materials
  • Upscaling of coating production

Project Activities

To reach the targeted goals, the project partners work hand in hand and to make sure that the results can be transferred into the production process after the end of the project, and an intensive exchange between the partners and countries is achieved. The project work is portioned in various technical activities, which, in addition to the important aspects such as reporting, dissemination and explications represent the center of the project.
