Cellulose pulpCellulose pulp is produced either from softwood or hardwood. The wood chips are boiled together with chemicals to remove the lignin between the fibres. The pulp is bleached in order to achieve a clean, bright and strong product, but also to increase the hygienic and absorbent qualities.There are two major bleaching methods: ECF (elementary chlorine free) and TCF (totally chlorine free).ECF is based on oxygene, chlorine dioxide and hydrogen peroxide. TCF is based on hydrogen peroxide and ozone.ECF is used in this product.PolypropylenePolypropylene fibres is produced from polypropylene resin. The resin is melted in an extruder and spun to fibres through spinnerettes and cooled with air. Fibres are then cut to intended fibrelength.The fibres used contains blue fibres.PolyesterPolyester fibre is produced from terephtalic acid and ethyleneglycol, which react through condensation to polyester resin. The molten resin is spun to fibres through spinnerettes and cooled with air. Fibres are then cut to intended fibrelength.Chemicals Both functional and process chemicals are used. The functional chemical usedis a wetstrength agent. The wetstrength agent is a polyamide (from polyamidine/epichlorhydrinepolymer) with a very high affinity to the fibre.The process chemical used is a surfactant.
