papermaking process BACK TO DIAGRAM
BLENDCHEST


The stock passes to a blend chest where numerous chemcials can be added to obtain the required characteristics to the finished paper. Dyes are also added, as necessary, to colour the paper. Dyes fix themselves to the cellulose fibres and are fast to light and water.

Each grade of paper and board requires a very accurate blend of pulps and additives and the properties of the paper are continually monitored by computers during manufacture.
