Ultra Clean Papers from Flexlink LLC

October 3rd, 2019|

Ultra Clean Papers from Flexlink LLC As you probably know, Flexlink supplies a range of ultra-clean, low ash, low chloride and low sulfate specialty papers for interleaving, archival and other applications. Usually, these papers are used in highly specialized applications. In one recent application, an industrial customer was looking for a separator tissue to go between their conveyor and the product they process.
