DescriptionSpecific refining energy and gross wood properties accounted for as much as 90% of the total variation in strength of handsheets made from 96 pulps disk-refined from chips of varying characteristics. Burst, tear, and breaking length were increased by applying high specific refining energy and using fast-grown wood of high latewood content but of relatively low density. To maximize sheet density, only high refining energy and high proportion of latewood were required.
