Analysis of starch penetration into paper and board

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientific


    This paper presents a novel method for determining starch penetration through iodine staining and microscopic imaging of surface-sized paper cross-sections and image analysis of the resulting images. The numerical penetration information obtained was used in further processing, such as determining a dimensionless penetration number Q. The penetration number can be quantitatively used in comparing the penetration of starch in different paper samples produced under different process conditions.
