Our solutions for the paper industry

The high levels of competition in the paper sector required the modernization of production facilities, generating heavy investments. In this context, any production shutdowns – even brief ones – have major financial implications.

In order to help you optimise your machines' productivity while protecting them at the same time, you can count on TOTAL lubricants and the expertise of our technical teams.

Our products meet the strictest standards set by the main component manufacturers in the paper industry (Metso, Voight, etc.). They ensure that your machines continue to operate at high levels of performance, despite pollution from dust, humidity, corrosive atmospheres, etc., and high temperatures.
