The purpose of this study was to determine what effects different deinking processes have on the coating compounds used on carbonless forms. Three deinking processes were studied: repulping without deinking chemicals or bleach, deinking using deinking chemicals only, and deinking using both deinking chemicals and bleach. None of the processes were successful at completely removing the oil, which is located in the microcapsules, or the resin, which is used to coat the coated-front portion (CF) of the carbonless form. Of the three deinking processes studied, simple repulping was most effective at eliminating the resin used in the coatings, while the process which included deinking chemicals plus bleach, was most effective at eliminating the oil.
