Benchmarking of pulp, paper and packaging
VTT Expert Services Ltd can provide detailed information of any pulp.
Analysis of fiber raw materials by light microscopy (wood species, non wood
fibers, proportion of various cell types)
Fiber dimensions usually analyzed by automatic devices (FS 300), but in more
detail also by light microscopy or SEM
Analysis of fibrillation and fiber damages
Purity (dirt and shives, brightness)
Chemical properties (carbohydrates, lignin, extractives content and
composition, metals etc.)
All relevant papermaking properties after standard beating in a PFI mill or
after refining in a Voith laboratory refiner. The latter gives an evaluation
of pulps after realistic mill-like refining conditions with true net energy
The pulps can also be evaluated for various paper and board applications by making furnish sheets in a standard or dynamic sheet former.
Benchmarking of various paper and board products can be made accordingly. For example, the fiber or pulp type composition can easily be analyzed qualitatively of quantitatively. We offer you a wide competence base for testing paper, packaging materials and printability. We support customers in developing their existing products and introducing totally new end-products based on biomaterials.
Our laboratory has a world class portfolio of testing and analyses capabilities. For planning the testing and analyses of your materials, our expertise can be fully utilized and the value of the results acquired can substantially benefit your products.
