Volume 17 – Pulp and Paper Testing


Edited by Jan-Erik Levlin and Liva Söderhjelm
Testing and analytical procedures are needed to describe the properties of

  • Single fibers
  • The fiber collective in the form of fiber suspensions
  • The fiber collective in the form of the final network – the paper.

Actually, a large number of more or less direct testing and analytical methods have already been developed. These are described in this book. Interactions between fibers, fillers, and other components are much more difficult to measure directly and to describe in numerical terms. Much research is being done in this area to further our understanding of the phenomena involved. In compiling this volume, some limitations were necessary. Thus the book deals only with laboratory tests.
