- A napkin or serviette
is a rectangle of cloth or paper used at the table for wiping the mouth
while eating. It is usually small and folded.
- A napkin may also be
held together in a bundle (with cutlery) by a napkin ring.
Alternatively, paper napkins may be contained with a napkin holder.
- A napkin is also a
small scarf placed on the head by a woman entering a Roman Catholic
Church as a conventional token of modesty. This practice is largely
extinct in modern times.
- Technological process
for converting of napkins and handkerchiefs consists of the following
stages: unwinding of paper reels, regulation of margins, satinizing,
embossing, cutting and folding, counting, stacking and transport stetje,
basic packaging, labelling , group packaging, wrapping of palettes .
- The bursting tearing
strength relation indicates the pulps for the experimental paper were
processed in the beater more than desired. The experimental reference
sheet tended to be less soft than desirable for this grade of tissue
paper, although the softness would undoubtedly be improved in the
ordinary commercial converting operations in making toilet tissue rolls.
- Clearly the most
important leaps in tissue making technology are centered around the
production of structured tissue similar to TAD, which is today
recognized as the best technology for making high quality, highly
absorbent tissue in large quantities.
- A large quantity of
TAD will hit the market all at once, and there are very few markets in
the world that, until now at least, are capable of absorbing quantities
on the order of 50,000 or 60,000 tons per year.
- Tissue consumption is
stagnating in Europe. An increasing number of tissue mills based in the
Middle East are now exporting to Europe and displacing existing European
mills because they are more price-competitive. Some Europeans are
restructuring in an effort to cut costs and closing down European mills
in the process. However, itís not all plain sailing for Middle Eastern
producers in the years ahead. In the familiar cyclical pattern of the
industry, a number of expansion projects in the region are being
built to respond to growing demand. They could mean that the
supply-demand balanced is in danger of being tipped in favor of tissue
- Players in the tissue
market could look to expand in the future, according to the latest
figures. The value of the global tissue paper business is $30 billion,
and the volume is over 20 million tonnes. North America and Europe
account for over 60% of consumption. In the 1990s, the global market
grew at a rate of close to 4%/yr.
- World average per
capita consumption of tissue paper is 3.4 kg. The differences between
regions are huge. Per capita consumption levels are highest in North
America (22 kg), western Europe (13 kg) and Japan (over 13 kg). In
China, other Asia and Africa, the consumption levels are 2 kg or below.
The figures show that the global tissue business has much potential to
grow in the future.
Kitchen towels and napkins have specific technical
characteristics and perform specific functions that differentiate them
from paper and board packaging materials and other paper products.
