TANYA - 2BF is Liquid Optial Whitener

of Cellulosic Fibres.







Clear pale yellowish liquid of low viscosity with specific gravity 1.15.



Anionic, Stilbene derivatives.



A solution of 1 gm/litre TANYA - 2BF Liquid has pH of 7 - 8 .



It can be diluted with water in all proportions.


TANYA - 2BF Liquid remains stable for upto a year, if kept in cool dry place away from light



Good fastness to light, alkali, acid & chlorine stability to alum is good at pH 5.5 & above.



1. In the mass :

Generally amount required is 0.05 - 0.3% TANYA - 2BF Liquid calculated on dry substance. The white effect depends on the original whiteness of the bleached cellulose and also of the binders & white pigment used. Solution of TANYA - 2BF Liquid can be added to the beater, hydropulper, mixing chest or continuously to obtain highest yield, the additions should be made in the following order.




TANYA - 2BF Liquid

ALUM (if possible 10-15 minutes after addition the TANYA-2BF Liquid)

The maximum white effect is reached at 0.6%

2. Surface Coatings :

(a) In size Coatings :

The amount required is generally 0.5 - 5 gm/litre TANYA - 2BF Liquid.

To improve the printing & writing properties size solution (reduced starches, CMC etc.) are often applied to the surface on the size press or some other device which may or may not be part of the paper machine. For reasons of economy it is advisable in these cases to add the optical whitener to the size and the basic whiteness of the untreated paper should be as high as possible. For really high whites a small amount of optical whitener needs to be added at the beater stge.

The improve the printing propertiesit is also desirable for the coating slurry to be kept slightly alkaline (pH 8 - 9) with concentrated ammonia, as this also gives an optimum whitening effect. (Maximum whiteness is obtained at 8 gm/litre TANYA - 2BF Liquid.

(b) in Pigmented Coating Slurries :

Generally required amount is 0.5 - 5 gm/litre TANYA - 2BF Liquid.

TANYA - 2BF Liquid is particularly suitable for pigmented coating slurries with a starch/latex base due to its high afinity for the normal range of binders. The quantities required again depend on the basic whiteness of the white pigments and binders, the machine speed, of the thickness of the coating and the white effect required.

To obtain the maximum white effect the pH of the coating should be kept slightly alkaline (pH 8 - 9) with concentrated ammonia.

The maximum quantities of optical whitener can be as high as 12 gm/litre depending on the make up of the coating slurry.
