Fibre properties A paper network forms by bonding of fibres and fibre fragments. The properties of all the components including fillers and additives influence the properties of the paper. The fibre material is the most heterogeneous of these components. This makes the measurement of fibre properties a challenging task. Different means are used to characterise
