Abstract

The gel point is the lowest solids content at which a fibre suspension forms a continuously connected network [1, 2] and is related to the fibre aspect ratio. We have previously shown that cellulose nanofibre aspect ratio is a critical fibre parameter controlling network formation in sheet forming and sheet mechanical properties [3-5] and that gel-point can be measured from data of final sediment height and initial solids concentration, for a range of dilute suspensions.
