Abstract

Linerboards are multiply structures consisting of two or more layers of different pulp composition. Curl is thought to occur due to the differences in these layers in a number of parameters including fibre orientation and fibre density. In this paper, some observations on curl of linerboard due to one-sided wetting are reported. It is observed that for the commercial linerboard grade tested, the settled curl axis depends on which side is wetted. Some reasons that could explain this behaviour are discussed.
