Macro- and microscopic deformability of fiber networks made from softwood fibres

Holmen is a major Swedish producer of paper and board products. Most of these products are based on softwood fibres. During converting of the products, they are plastically deformed in folding, creasing or embossing operations. This deformation occurs both in a macro and microscale. It is therefore important to understand the influence of the raw …

The effect of compaction parameters on the properties of high-deformable paper

This project addresses the challenges of producing high-deformable paper for 3D forming applications using the in-plane compaction process. Enabling 3D forming of advanced paper structures paves the way for complete elimination of plastic based packaging or partial replacement of plastic in multi-material packages, which aligns with current international strategies for a sustainable development of the …

Impact of compaction parameters on the mechanical properties of highly extensible paper

The possibility of producing three-dimensional advanced paper structures create the conditions for replacing plastic-based solutions or plastic details in packaging with multi-material and contributes in an essential way to strategies for a sustainable social development .  Within this context, the project deals with the challenge of producing highly stretchable paper for 3D forming applications through in-plane …
