Fibers & Pulp

ABM-Paper International General Trading

1. Fluff Pulp

Fluff pulp (also called comminution pulp or fluffy pulp) is a type of chemical pulp made from long fiber softwoods. Important parameters for fluff pulp are bulk and water absorbency.

2. Bleached Soft-Wood Pulp

Chemical pulp combines wood chips and chemicals into what is called a digester. The chemical process in the digester breaks down the lignin in the fiber. Lignin is the glue that holds fibers together.

3. Unbleached Soft-Wood pulp

This kinds of pulp are made from soft wood trees and it wont bleached during the production process.

4. Bleached Hard-wood pulp

This kind of pulps are made from hard wood trees and bleached by chemicals

5. Bleached Eucalyptus Pulp

Bleached Eucalyptus Kraft (BEK) pulp is made from 100% bleached FSC® certified hardwood fibers from well managed forestry plantations. The product has an FSC® chain of custody certification guaranteeing the proper management of the forest. Beached eucalyptus kraft pulp is Total Chlorine Free (TCF) and as such is environmentally friendly.

6. Bleached Acacia Pulp

Made from Acacia trees, the bleaching process is necessary for that.

7. Chemi-Thermo Mechanical pulp

Wood chips can be pretreated with sodium carbonate, sodium hydroxide, sodium sulfite and other chemicals prior to refining with equipment similar to a mechanical mill. The conditions of the chemical treatment are much less vigorous (lower temperature, shorter time, less extreme pH) than in a chemical pulping process since the goal is to make the fibres easier to refine, not to remove lignin as in a fully chemical process. Pulps made using these hybrid processes are known as chemithermomechanical pulps (CTMP).

8. Hardwood & Softwood pulp (BCTMP)

BCTMP was first produced by Millar Western in 1988 in its Whitecourt Mill, and was initially used in lower grade paper applications. The product is attractive to producers because it needed less capital to construct the production facilities and provides higher yields than other processes which lowers the total cost of production. In addition, BCTMP provides higher bulk, opacity and stiffness in the final product and the process is more environmentally friendly.

9. Dissolving pulp

Dissolving pulp, also called dissolving cellulose, is bleached wood pulp or cotton linters that has a high cellulose content (> 90%). It has special properties including a high level of brightness and uniform molecular-weight distribution.
