The role of fibre bonding in paper properties

Research output: ThesisDissertationCollection of Articles

Abstract

In this thesis several aspects of fibre bonding were studied: 1) The role of interfibre bonding as one essential network property was analysed and its effect on paper properties studied, and 2) the deformation and rupture behaviour of paper was monitored. 3) Measurement methods of the strength of fibre bonds and specific bond strength were compared. 4) Several methods of affecting interfibre bonding were studied and their effects on paper properties were examined. Two interesting methods, addition of strength chemicals and fines, were studied more closely. And, finally, 5) the role of fibre bonds in the blending of pulps, and 6) reducing of grammage were discussed.
