Exploring Interleaving Paper and Top BoardWeidmann
Interleaving Paper and Top Board are a family of papers used primarily as a barrier between the manufacturing process and the product. These papers are often used in the manufacturing of engineered stone or agglomerated stone to produce composite quartz and artificial stone products for kitchen worktops, bathroom countertops, flooring, facades, and walls.
Interleaving Paper and Top Board are the perfect choice for the engineered stone manufacturing process due to their ability to prevent or limit oil penetration. The process requires a smooth, flat surface to prevent indents and avoiding the need for increased grinding. Using paper in this process not only meets the manufacturing demands, but also offers a more sustainable option compared to other materials such as rubber, plastic and polyester.
Manufactured from cellulose-based sustainable fiber materials, Weidmann CSM is dedicated to focusing on products which are natural and sustainable. Our materials are manufactured using the inherent bonding properties of cellulose (hydrogen bonding), eliminating the need for any chemical binders. The manufacturing process of our paper uses only water, heat and pressure.
Interleaving paper and Top Board can be supplied in a range sizes and thicknesses, depending on the application. The papers’ barrier properties make them an ideal choice for protecting processing equipment used in engineered stone production.
With over 140 years’ experience as paper manufacturers, our team of experts ensures your papers are of the highest quality from the selection of raw materials, to required smoothness, tear resistance, stiffness and tensile supporting your technical requirements, and providing a range of paper grades optimized for the end use.
