How to distinguish the fiber components in toilet paper?


Toilet paper is a kind of household paper, which besides itself includes facial tissues, napkins and other paper products. It has a single square shape, which is called square tissue or facial tissue, and it is also rolled into a roller shape, which is called roll paper. They are usually made of cotton pulp, wood pulp, straw pulp, and waste paper pulp. Good quality products are made of virgin wood pulp. It is similar to the manufacturing process of ordinary paper, but it is required to be made extremely thin and fragile. It will rot when it encounters water, achieving the goal of environmental protection.


So how to identify the quality of toilet paper? Generally speaking, the quality of paper with more fiber content is relatively better. Today I will teach you how to distinguish the fibers in toilet paper.

The main components of the product raw materials: plant fiber, in addition to the three main components of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin, there are other components with less content, such as resin and ash. In addition, there are auxiliary components such as sodium sulfate.

1. Cellulose: From the perspective of papermaking, we should try our best to retain cellulose during the pulping process to improve the yield of toilet paper pulp and paper strength.

2. Hemicellulose: In order to improve the pulp yield and paper strength, paper mills should retain as much hemicellulose as possible during the pulping process.

3. Lignin: The more lignin in the raw material, the more difficult it is to make pulp and the more chemicals to be consumed.
