M.J. Alava and K.J. Niskanen. Performance of reinforcement fibres in paper. In The Fundamentals of Papermaking Materials, Trans. of the XIth Fund. Res. Symp. Cambridge, 1997, (C.F. Baker, ed.), pp 1177–1213, FRC, Manchester, 2018.


Paper properties can be controlled by mixing different furnishes . The outcome of the elastic, strength and toughness properties is analyzed in this work using results from other fields of material science . particularly from composites . We discuss the micromechanics of reinforcement fibres, their conformability to the background fibre web and the fracture processes in reinforced paper. Reinforcement fibres should have high ductility and they be similar to the mechanical furnish iii their
micromechanical stiffness.
