THE SOFTNESS OF PAPER
21-07-2021
Hygienic paper is one of the basic products AT home and one of the most dificult to change or replace when we found the ideal. This is due to the factors on which we are most looking to choose the product.

Let's find out what these characteristics are to which we pay so much attention:





      • The color of the paper

      • The resistance

      • The layers it contains

      • Let the wrapper allow us to display the interior product

      • Smoothness






All of these variables can be related to the extent that we can even think that some influence others. For example, when we consider changing to a more sustainable product that is made of recycled paper, different questions comes to our mind: will it be just as soft as a virgin paste paper? Or, with this color, can you bring me the same softness as a white color?

Smoothness is one of the factors that most influences our process of choosing and buying hygienic paper. For this reason many manufacturers, such as Goma-Camps, use TSA soft equipment. This machine can measure smoothness through the emission of a noise and subsequent mathematical calculation.

Now that we know how the softness of any tissue paper is measured, let us see whether all types of cellulose can actually deliver the same softness. The smoothness that can become a paper depends on the fibers with which this tissue is made, on the gofing, the type of product and many other variables that influence to achieve the desired smoothness. So on some occasions products made from recycled paste do not reach the level of softness than virgin paste.

Even so, the perception of the softness of products can be improved, and one of the ways is with gofing. It is almost impossible to find a hygienic scroll that does not have gofing, or better known, as a drawing. From this "drawing" the glue is introduced that brings together the layers that make up the scroll. In the case of Gomà-Camps, it is being invested to improve the quality of our products every day. For the same reason, we have created a new ConforDeco Gofing that provides 25% more suavity in hygienics that we make in our Vilaverd converting plant (according to the Handfeel calculation done in our laboratory). This has been made possible by the Pixel thecnology, with which we can only bring tails between layers through the little points of drawing.
