  • Patent number: 6699360
    Abstract: A process for the manufacture of single-ply, absorbent paper product, printed on before or after embossing on the Yankee side, air side, or both sides, having a serpentine configuration; low sidedness; a basis weight of at least about 12.5 lbs. per 3000 square foot ream; a specific total tensile strength between 40 and 200 g/3 inches/lb per 3000 square foot ream; a cross direction specific wet tensile strength between 2.75 and 20.0 g/3 inches/lb per 3000 square foot ream; an MD tensile to CD tensile ratio between 1.25 and 2.75; a specific geometric mean tensile stiffness between 0.5 and 3.2 g/inch/% strain per pound per 3000 square foot ream; a friction deviation of less than 0.250; a sidedness parameter of less than 0.30; and a printed sidedness value of &Dgr;E of less than 2.

  • Publication number: 20040031243
    Abstract: Packaging materials, in particular, film and products which comprise (a) a substrate and (b) an energy sensitive indicia-former. The film has at least one heat sensitive indicia-former on at least part of the film. The film comprises a thin film substrate which is substantially transparent to radiant energy. Associated with at least part of the film substrate is an absorbent material which is sufficiently opaque to radiant energy to absorb said radiant energy and convert the radiant energy into heat energy. The indicia-former undergoes conversion from a first visual condition to a second visual condition upon exposure to heat energy from the absorbent material. The film is used preferably as a shrink wrap of the open top of drink containers and to identify the contents of the container.

  • Patent number: 6517673
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a soft, thick, single-ply, printed, absorbent paper product having a Yankee side and an air side wherein the absorbent paper is printed on before or after embossing on the Yankee side, air side, or both sides, said absorbent paper exhibiting a serpentine configuration. This inventions also relates to a process for the manufacture of such absorbent paper product having a basis weight of at least about 12.5 lbs. per 3000 square foot ream and having low sidedness, said tissue exhibiting: a specific total tensile strength of between 40 and 200 grams per 3 inches per pound per 3000 square foot ream, a cross direction specific wet tensile strength of between 2.75 and 20.0 grams per 3 inches per pound per 3000 square foot ream, the ratio of MD tensile to CD tensile of between 1.25 and 2.75, a specific geometric mean tensile stiffness of between 0.5 and 3.2 grams per inch per percent strain per pound per 3000 square foot ream, a friction deviation of less than 0.
