Production of tissue grades
Tissues (bathroom tissues, napkins, kitchen towels or handkerchiefs) are produced for use at home (AH) and away from home (AfH) in a range of qualities, colors and packaging. The fiber composition varies strongly and reflects the requirements of the intended use.
Products in use
- Omya offers different filler grades from various sources to provide our customers with the most appropriate solution. Factors to consider when recommending the appropriate grade include product quality (brightness, shade, abrasiveness), packaging and availability
- In several installations worldwide, we have shown that the use of fresh calcium carbonate for high-quality tissue products is both feasible and economical
- Due to the increasing pressure (availability and price) on high-quality white recycled fibers, we see a demand for fillers in several high-quality recycled tissue grades
Calcium carbonate for tissue
The Omyasoft product family consists of high-brightness ground calcium carbonates (GCC) derived from chalk, limestone or marble. These products are available in different levels of abrasiveness, fineness or brightness and can be supplied as slurries or in dry form. They can be delivered in bulk (dry and slurry) by container and packaged in large bags or small water-soluble paper bags.
