In the manufacturing process for disposable tissue and sanitary products, a wide variety of additives are commonly used for several purposes.
Additives are used in products to maintain, lose or gain strength, hold dissimilar parts together, offer moisturizer and softness, or even to absorb moisture and odors.
The aforementioned additives are typically not visible to the naked eye or, in many cases, even under the microscope. Therefore, it is necessary to render them visible.
Specific fiber stains have been extremely instrumental in identifying the physical structures of these products in product development and problem solving.
Tom Kremer, our technical leader of microscopy, recently presented at McCrone Research Institute's 2010 Inter/Micro conference about how stains can help identify consumer product problems.
