Title: Properties of kenaf from various cultivars, growth and pulping conditions

Author: Han, James S.; Miyashita, Ernest S.; Spielvogel, Sara J.;

Date: 1999

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The physical properties of kenaf offer potential as an alternative raw material for the manufacture of paper. Investigations to date have not determined whether core and fiber should be pulped together or separately. Kenaf bast and core fibers of different cultivars were pulped under various kraft pulping conditions and physical properties: density, Canadian Standard freeness, caliper, elongation, tensile strength, tensile index, tensile energy absorption, ISO brightness, printing opacity, bursting strength, burst index, tear resistance, tearing index, and smoothness of the test sheets were measured/analyzed in order to determine the optimum pulping conditions.

Keywords: Paper, Kenaf, Physical properties, Cultivars, Growth rate, Pulping
