Effect of microfibrillated cellulose and fines on the drainage of kraft pulp suspension and paper strength

  title={Effect of microfibrillated cellulose and fines on the drainage of kraft pulp suspension and paper strength},
  author={Tero Taipale and Monika {\"O}sterberg and Antti Nyk{\"a}nen and Janne Ruokolainen and Janne Laine},
Different types of microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) and fines suspensions were produced, characterized, and then added to a papermaking pulp suspension. High and medium molar mass cationic polyelectrolytes were used as fixatives. The drainage behavior of the pulp suspensions with additives were evaluated against the strength properties of hand sheets made thereof. The effects of salt concentration, pH, fixative type, dosage and type of fibrillar material on drainage were examined. All the MFC… 
Effect of tethered and free microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) on the properties of paper composites
High strength and low gas permeability cellulosic composites were produced using the papermaking technology with a commercial microfibrillated cellulose (MFC). The effect of blending MFC with
