Characterization data of pulp fibres performance in tissue papers applications


The data presented in this article are related to the original research paper entitled Comparative characterization of eucalyptus fibres and softwood fibres for tissue papers applications available in Materials Letter: X Journal [1]. In this article, six eucalyptus hardwood pulps and six softwood pulps were characterized in terms of morphological, chemical and water-related (by drainability and water retention index) properties. In addition, using these pulps, unpressed laboratory isotropic handsheets were produced with a basis weight of approximately 20 g/m(2), similarly to tissue papers. The key properties of tissue papers, namely structural properties, tensile index, absorption, and handfeel softness were analysed in these handsheets. (C) 2020 The Authors.
