  • Patent number: 11649380
    Abstract: A water-dispersible sheet is described that maintains water dispersibility while providing suppressed time degradation of the tacky adhesiveness of a tacky adhesive layer. The water-dispersible sheet has a paper substrate with a multilayer structure. One layer of the multilayer structure is an inner layer that is not in contact with the tacky adhesive layer. Another layer is a surface layer that is in contact with the tacky adhesive layer. The layers independently include mixed pulps of a wood pulp and a refined pulp with an ?-cellulose content of 88 % by weight or more. The weight ratio of the layers and the beating degree of the mixed pulps are set in the specific ranges.

  • Publication number: 20200231844
    Abstract: The present invention provides a water-dispersible sheet with a suppressed time degradation of the tacky adhesiveness of the tacky adhesive layer, while maintaining the water dispersibility. The time degradation of the tacky adhesiveness of the tacky adhesive layer of a water-dispersible sheet can be suppressed, while maintaining the water dispersibility of the water-dispersible sheet, by using a paper substrate of the water-dispersible sheet with a multilayer structure, wherein one of the multilayer (inner layer) which is not in contact with a tacky adhesive layer and the other layer (surface layer) which is in contact with the tacky adhesive layer comprise independently a mixed pulp of a wood pulp and a refined pulp with ?-cellulose content of 88% by weight or more, wherein the weight ratio of these layers and the beating degree of the mixed pulps are set in the specific ranges.
