Alkyl Succinic Anhydrides (ASA) Market: Overview
Alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) are fiber reactive nuclear sizing agents used in the paper industry. Sizing papers with alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) emulsions help impart water resistance by controlling its printing properties. Alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) is an efficient sizing agent, especially suitable for the environmental protection requirements. Alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) cures kinetics depending on the conversion to the ketone form of the compound, which occurs during drying of the paper at high temperature. Traditional applications of alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) in the paper industry includes several tedious steps, such as emulsification, the mixing of emulsified alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) with an aqueous mixture that contains fibers, cellulosic fines, mineral particles, and other chemical agents. The alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) emulsion particles adhere either to the fibers, to cellulosic fines, or to mineral surfaces in the suspension during the manufacturing of paper sheet.
Alkyl Succinic Anhydrides (ASA) Market: Drivers & Restraints
Alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) market are used in the form of emulsions in sizing of finer qualities of paper. In comparison to other acidic sizing agent, such as gum rosin, alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) aids in reducing machine breakdown and water recycling difficulties of the standard acidic paper manufacture process. Alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) market also minimizes water absorption and enhances the surface conditions of paper during a neutral paper manufacturing process. In the paper industry, alkyl succinic anhydrides (ASA) market play a significant role in minimizing the detrimental environmental impact of water contamination by facilitating the recycling of water in the paper production process.
