Paper and Board Grades
Book editor: Hannu Paulapuro, D. Sc. (Tech.), Professor, Helsinki University of Technology
Volume 18 of the Papermaking Science and Technology Series, published by the Finnish Paper Engineers’ Association. There are hundreds of different types of papers and boards produced in the world and new types are continuously emerging. This book does not aim to examine them all, but covers the most important grades in the international markets. The classification is based on that used by the European forest industry companies, with the main division being:
- Printing and writing papers
- Specialty papers
Each group is divided into subgroups and main grades and the grades are examined in view of the end uses, raw material composition, and manufacturing technology. Air-laid papers are dealt with in a separate group. Data on the end-use properties are not normally presented, since they are changing continuously due to ever-increasing quality competition.
The Papermaking Science and Technology series is also an excellent textbook resource for universities and colleges. This series is ideal to train new employees at your company or as a reference guide for your experienced workforce.
