why choose tissue paper?
Biodegradable tissue paper, offers a multitude of benefits, with sustainability at the forefront of its appeal. In an era where environmental consciousness is paramount, choosing eco-friendly tissue materials as a packaging or wrapping material is a responsible choice. Sustainable tissue paper is created from sustainable materials, often using renewable fibers like bamboo or recycled paper content, reducing damaging effects on the environment. Its lightweight nature minimizes transportation emissions, further contributing to eco-friendliness. Additionally, tissue packaging adds an aesthetic touch to gift wrapping, enhancing the presentation while remaining eco-conscious. Once its purpose is fulfilled, tissue paper easily decomposes, leaving no lasting environmental impact. By choosing eco-friendly tissue materials, we can reduce our carbon footprint, promote responsible sourcing, and embrace a sustainable approach to tissue paper packaging and wrapping.
Our tissue products range
Our portfolio includes a wide range of tissue products, each serving a unique purpose to a host of industries. Paper suppliers like PG Paper can source paper that is manufactured in an extensive range of colours and textures, which can be moistened and/or perfumed depending on its intended use.
Toilet paper is the most purchased commodity in European and American countries. It comes in various numbers of ‘ply’ (layers of thickness), ranging from one-ply to six-ply. More back-to-back plies offer greater strength and absorbency. Typically, toilet tissue has the lowest grade of fibres used for tissue paper, but it can be rippled, perfumed, colored, patterned, medicated, or treated with aloe vera or other perfumes, providing consumers with a wide array of options to suit their preferences and needs.
The second most popular tissue paper by consumption, paper towels are used in place of a conventional cloth towel for drying hands, wiping windows and other surfaces, and dusting. The ‘kitchen roll’ is a standard feature of most domestic and commercial kitchens, for clearing up those accidental spills. It is convenient, and of course, disposable. Paper towels soak up liquids because they are loosely woven, enabling the liquid to travel between the fibres. It is most commonly available as a two-ply product but can be manufactured at four-ply. Paper towels are generally sold packed as stacks of folded towels or in rolls. Moreover, they offer a quick and efficient solution for cleaning up messes and maintaining hygiene in various environments, from homes to workplaces.
Facial tissues and paper handkerchiefs are made from the lowest base weights of tissue paper and often have a smooth finish achieved by light calendaring. Tissues or ‘hankies’ are mainly manufactured as two-three ply thickness. Given market demands for a higher-quality tissue, the base tissue used in these ranges is normally made entirely from pure chemical pulp, though some recycled fibres may be added. Softeners, lotions, or perfumes are often added by some tissue manufacturers to differentiate their product range; whatever best meets the needs of your target consumer.
Paper napkins come in many shapes, plies and sizes, ranging from table napkins for home use to commercial napkins for use in dispensers. These can all be offered from one to four plies and in a vast number of colours, patterns, folds and sizes depending on the intended use. Paper suppliers like PG Paper can source the ideal grade, style and quantity of paper to suit your requirements, no matter if you’re a manufacturer of home products or looking for napkins to use in service industry applications.
This type of paper is thin, translucent, coloured, and often patterned, intended for use in gift wrapping to add an extra special and luxury feel to a boxed or bagged gift. It is also used for tissue paper crafts such as origami and for decoration and presentation purposes.
wet laid tissue
Wet-laid tissue paper stands out as one of the most extensively manufactured tissue materials worldwide. This solution is manufactured using a process called ‘wet-laid formation’, in which pulp fibres are mixed with water and inserted onto a wire or mesh screen. Following this, the water is drained, and the fibres join together to create a paper sheet.
This process enhances the strength and absorbency attributes of the tissue paper, resulting in a highly durable solution which is used for various applications where great strength is required. This process also results in the tissue to have high absorbency, enabling it to efficiently soak up liquids, spills and moistures.
Due to wet laid tissues high strength and absorbency capabilities, this solution is used for a wide range of end applications. Wet laid tissue is used to manufacture personal hygiene solutions, as well as household tissues, industrial tissues and medical applications.
air laid tissue
The production method of this tissue material is much different to traditional tissue paper. Air laid tissue paper is produced by air laying pulp fibres onto a moving conveyor, creating a tissue product which is highly absorbent and strong. Air laid tissue paper is most often used to manufacture absorbent hygiene products, industrial wipes and medical dressings.
Medical tissue grades
There are a various medical tissue paper grades used throughout the healthcare industry and are most commonly used to maintain hygiene and sterility. Unlike regular tissue paper, medical tissues are subjected to thorough testing processes to adhere to quality standards. This specialised tissue material is designed to be hypoallergenic, non-toxic and contaminants free, making it safe to be used in medical procedures. Some medical tissue applications include:
Surgical Tissue Paper: Most commonly used for drying and wiping during medical procedures.
Medical Exam Table Paper: Used to cover examination tables in medical rooms or clinics, creating a barrier between the table and patient to reduce cross contamination and promote hygiene.
Patient Gowns: Used within hospitals to provide modesty and protection for patients having to undergo a medical examination or operation and are disposable to enhance hygiene standards.
Carrier tissue paper is used as a transfer sheet for the absorbent fluff pulp used in the production of female hygiene products and baby diapers. This tissue barrier is used to increase the robustness of hygiene products, as well as increasing absorbency and overall comfort.
MG (Machine glazed) tissue
A tissue material which has a smooth, glossy surface on one side and an opposing slightly rougher side. The smooth side is ideal for printing due to facilitating a high-quality finish and appearance, making MG tissue a popular tissue solution for the likes of wrapping paper and food packaging.
