Investigation of Wet Paper Cohesive Properties

by Guerrero Serrato, Alexander

Abstract (Summary)
Wet web paper cohesive properties behave in a similar way than tensile strength properties. The result was obtained using an unique apparatus developed by the IPST, which allows the cohesive strength determination for different wet web solids content. With the results a linear relation can be established between the cohesive strength index (obtained with the splitting apparatus) and the tensile strength index (obtained with the Instron). The splitting apparatus results can be used to calculate strain based on the work of Osterberg.
