The term "white pitch" was coined at this time to refer to deposits formed by the interaction of these broke materials and wet end chemicals.
Our technical group developed the application of low molecular weight (LMW) and high charge density (HCD) chemicals to neutralize broke contaminants and measurement techniques to monitor their use and success.
Our group locked in on the highly negative character of the broke components and settled on trying to neutralize that negative nature with the cationic charge of LMW and HCD polymers and papermakers' alum.
Not long after my girlfriend and I broke up, I was stuck with a Brooklyn rent I could no longer afford.
I'm seriously more broke than I have ever been in my life, and I don't know how.
