Abstract

Chemical additives are used singly or in combination to impart functionality to hygiene paper (suggested). In particular, in the hygiene paper making process, dry strength agent, wet strength agent, softener, and other are widely used. The effects of chemical additives on the softness components were evaluated. In the case of surface softness, there was no change in MMD according to the addition of dry and wet strength agents. The MMD (mean deviation from the average friction of coefficient) was decreased by adding a softener, which is the purpose of its addition to the hygiene paper making process. The softness and wet strength were improved when the wet strength agent was added before the softener. In addition, lotion treatment was applied to the surface of tissue paper. The surface softness component of non-silicone-based lotion was similar or improved, which may overcome the problems of silicon-based lotion.

Keywords: bulk softness; chemical additives; hygiene paper; objective measurement; softness; surface softness
