Functional agents or additives
Cellulose pulp is produced either from softwood or hardwood coming from responsibly managed forests. The wood chips are boiled together with chemicals to remove the lignin between the fibres. The pulp is TCF (Totally Chlorine Free) or ECF (Elementary Chlorine Free) bleached in order to achieve a clean, bright and strong product, but also to increase the hygienic and absorbent qualities.
Polyester fibre is produced from terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol, which react through condensation to polyester resin. The molten resin is spun to fibres through spinnerets and cooled with air. The fibers are then cut to intended fiber length.
Polypropylene or polypropene is a thermoplastic polymer made from oil. The moten resin is spun to endless fibres through spinnerets and cooled by air. The fibres form a web.
Functional additives could be wet strength agent, antistatic agent and wetting additives/tensides.
