Chemisphere Paper Technologies
Chemisphere Paper Technologies, formerly known as SA Paper Chemicals, was formed in 1963 as a division of Chemical Services, one of the largest specialty chemical suppliers in Southern Africa. Size and defoamers were then supplied to an East Rand based paper mill. SA Paper Chemicals became a “stand alone company” in 1978 and was the first dedicated supplier of chemicals to the pulp and paper industry in South Africa. Chemisphere Paper Technologies strives to be the leading and most respected South African manufacturer and supplier of specialty chemicals to the pulp, paper, board and tissue industries. The company supplies technology advancement to the local industry which is strongly supported by our International Technology Partner, Ashland Hercules. Extensive experience in supplying chemicals to the industry has given CHEMISPHERE Paper Technologies invaluable applications knowledge and a result-orientated approach to the use of specialty chemicals in the paper industry.
As from January 2012 Chemisphere Paper Technologies is divided into six distinct product classes, called Centers of Excellence: These classes consist of: Contaminant Control (CC), Microbiological Control (MB), Size & Defoamer (S&D) & Pulping Aids, Strength (STR), Dyes, OBA’s and Retention & Drainage Aids (DOR) and Tissue Additives (TIS).
