Xylan extracts from southern US hardwood were used for the adsorption of both hardwood and softwood pulp. Pulp beatability and physical strength properties were determined and compared with those of the conventional Kraft pulp and pre-extracted modified Kraft pulp. The results indicated that hemicelluloses adsorption greatly improved pulp beatability. Compared to conventional Kraft pulp, a significant increase in pulp physical strength could be achieved by adsorbing hemicelluloses onto pulp. An… CONTINUE READING
