  • Publication number: 20210238805
    Abstract: A method of making a fabric-creped absorbent cellulosic sheet. The method includes compactively dewatering a papermaking furnish to form a web having a consistency of about 30 percent to about 60 percent, creping the web under pressure in a creping nip between a transfer surface and a structuring fabric, the structuring fabric including knuckles formed on warp yarns of the structuring fabric, with the knuckles having a length in the machine direction (MD) of the absorbent sheet and a width in the cross machine direction (CD) of the absorbent sheet, wherein a planar volumetric density index of the structuring fabric multiplied by a ratio of the length of the knuckles to the width of the knuckles is at least about 43, and drying the web to form the absorbent cellulosic sheet.

  • Publication number: 20210230805
    Abstract: A method of making a fabric-creped absorbent cellulosic sheet. The method includes compactively dewatering a papermaking furnish to form a web having a consistency of about thirty percent to about sixty percent, creping the web under pressure in a creping nip between a transfer surface and a structuring fabric, and drying the web to form the absorbent cellulosic sheet. The absorbent sheet has SAT capacities of at least about 9.5 g/g and at least about 500 g/m2. A creping ratio is defined by the speed of the transfer surface relative to the speed of the structuring fabric, and the creping ratio is less than about 25%.

  • Publication number: 20030157856
    Abstract: A moist wipe having a web of fibers stabilized as with a suitable binder, and the stabilized, dry web having an anionic surface charge not greater than about 1.2 meq/Kg. A cationic functional agent in an aqueous imbuement is added to the web which is partially adsorbed by the web and a portion of the agent remaining free. Because the anionic surface charge on the substrate is relatively low, there remains in the free aqueous medium a sufficient quantity of the functional agent deliverable to the surface to achieve the desired efficacy. The resulting web will adsorb a limited amount of the cationic functional agent in the aqueous imbuement, and thereby an adequate amount of the agent remains in the solution free of the web for deliverance to the surface, thereby obviating high loadings of the imbuement and the active functional agent.
