New Approaches to Stickies Control in Tissue-making Systems

Tissue makers using both virgin and recycled content to make their final products can suffer from highly sticky contaminants which can adhere to the machine fabrics. These stickies result in a final product that has visible holes, and when these holes are large enough or numerous enough, production breaks on both the tissue machine and in converting begin to occur. Two new technologies have been developed and accepted by tissue makers that have greatly reduced the negative impact of stickies.
