For the production of all its detergents, WVT applies the state-of-the-art technologies, using sophisticated software that controls the accurate mixture of ingredients and the production line, where they can monitor production step by step, assuring that each recipe receives exactly the correct amount. Automatic processing reduces human intervention to a minimum. The use of this technique enables them to adapt the detergent formulas to the customer’s needs and allows WVT to take into account important factors such as: the nature of the pollution that has to be removed; the cleaning techniques and the ergonomic and environmental aspects. After having received contaminated raw materials sent to them by their customers, their Research & Development laboratory analyzes important parameters like the nature of the contamination, the method of cleaning that is currently used (circulation, high pressure, etc), possibilities surrounding temperatures, the human parameters like whether protective gloves or other safety measures are permitted, the nature of the company (paper industry, printing, tissue converting, packaging, etc). With these parameters, WVT can quickly produce a tailored solution for its customer.

For the Tissue Industry, in the past few years WVT developed a 100% water-based product, Waterlube®, specially designed for use during the production of tissue toilet rolls and kitchen towel products in the Tissue Converting Industry. It is designed to replace the use of mineral oil lubricants which have been traditionally used to avoid the build-up of glues on the steel rolls used in the lamination process with steel to steel rolls, pin to pin, nested, micro-deco, micro-macro, perf and fan. The formulation is non-corrosive and will not damage surrounding surfaces or equipment. The product can be applied by spray, brush or felt applied in-line during the production process in an undiluted form guaranteeing a lower consumption with a saving of up to 30% compared with a comparable mineral lubricant. Technically Waterlube®benefits the customer as it has a neutral pH and is completely water based; it has no flash point and it eliminates the possibility of friction fires generated by the process. Furthermore, it has also a food-grade approved formulation, therefore following today’s legal regulations. From ordinary everyday to the most complex cleaning solutions, WVT supplies the customer with a package of chemical cleaning options so the converter can focus on its own core business.
