Pulp, Paper & Printing
Paper is one of the oldest and most often used materials in our daily life, e.g., in books, magazines, notepads, newspaper, money, packaging, arts, handkerchiefs, paper towels, filter paper or wallpaper. For printing the individual chemical composition and surface properties of a paper are very important factors as they can alter significantly the quality of the final print as result of adhesion and durability of the ink.
XPS surface analysis of printed paper samples with EnviroESCA
Results of the surface analysis of four paper samples obtained in EnviroESCA are presented. Neutralization of this insulating biopolymer is accomplished by Environmental Charge Compensation enabling X-ray Pho-toelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) on such important natural material with ease. ▷ Download PDF
