Pond Size Press Pigmentation with Platy Kaolin

The primary goal of the present work was to determine if fiber reduction might be possible when a pond size press is used to apply surface treatments pigmented with platy kaolin, similar to recent results obtained using a metered size press (MSP). Earlier MSP work also showed potential drying energy reduction with pigmented surface treatments, so quantifying this was also a goal of the current work.
