Tissue Paper Products

Tissue paper products, which include paper towels and toilet paper, play an important role in modern life. They contribute to improved hygiene, comfort and convenience in our society. Tissue paper products are highly engineered to provide strength, ultra-light weight, softness and absorbency, all at the same time.

Rolls of toilet paper were first introduced in the late 1800s and facial tissue made its debut in the 1920s. Today, tissue paper products are a popular, growing market. Demand for various tissue products continues to increase in the U.S. and abroad. Innovations in tissue and towel products have led to new product applications to meet the changing demographics of on-the-go millennials and today's families.

What is Tissue Paper Products?

Tissue is a general term indicating a class of papers which are characteristically gauzy in texture and, in some cases, fairly transparent. They may be glazed, unglazed, or creped, and are used for a variety of purposes.

Tissue can be manufactured using trees that are turned into wood chips and then cooked to separate the fiber (cellulose) from the glue that holds the tree together. This fiber is then formed into a sheet and ultimately into tissue. Tissue can also be manufactured from recycled paper products, or a combination of fresh fiber and recycled fiber. Most mills in the U.S. that produce tissue use some recycled paper products to make new tissue paper products.

Examples of different types of tissue paper products include toilet, facial, napkin, towels, wipes, and special sanitary papers. Desirable characteristics in these types of tissue papers are softness, strength, comfort, thickness and freedom from lint.

Other examples of tissue papers are decorative and laminated tissue papers and crepe papers, often used in gift wrapping and to decorate. Desirable characteristics here are appearance, strength, and durability.

What Kinds of Products are Made from Tissue Paper Products?

The_Value_of_Tissue 2-25-19Tissue papers are divided into three major categories: At-Home (or Consumer), Away-from-Home (or Commercial & Industrial), and Specialty.
At-Home products: Also known as Consumer Products, these are the tissue products you purchase in the grocery store, the convenience store and mass merchandisers for use in your home and include toilet paper and facial tissue, napkins and paper towels, wipes, and other special sanitary papers. For these products, softness and brightness are often high priorities. These products may also be decorated, multi-ply, scented, or contain emollients or lotions for added comfort and desirability.
Away-from-Home products: Also known as Commercial & Industrial Tissue, these are the products that serve markets such as hospitals, restaurants, schools, businesses and other institutions. These tissue paper products are often produced in large sizes, with dispensers designed for high volume, public use.
Specialty tissue papers: These types of tissue papers are often high-end, decorative papers that are glazed, unglazed, or creped, and include wrapping tissue for gifts and dry cleaning, as well as crepe paper for decorating.

Three of the most commonly used applications of tissue products are paper towels, toilet paper and facial tissue.
Paper Towels: Paper toweling is folded or rolled sheets used for drying or cleaning where quick absorption is required. Paper towels are often embossed during the converting process for additional cleaning strength or absorption. Paper towels can be made from virgin pulp or recycled paper products or maybe a combination of the two.
Toilet Paper: Based on the desire for better public hygiene, toilet tissue evolved along with the advent of indoor plumbing. Toilet tissue on a roll was introduced to North America in 1890 by Scott Paper Company. Designed to be sewer and septic safe, toilet tissue is an essential product of everyday life, providing sanitation, comfort, and convenience with each use.
Facial tissue: The class of soft, absorbent papers in the sanitary tissue group. Originally used for removal of creams, oil, and so on, from the skin, it is now used in large volume for packaged facial tissue, toilet paper, paper napkins, professional towels, industrial wipes, and for hospital items. Desirable characteristics are softness, strength, and freedom from lint.
