Foam forming principle

In the foam forming process air is mixed with fibers in water suspension containing a foaming agent. With the utilization of air, paper and paperboard properties can be improved and energy costs reduced. The foam forming enables production of very light and also heavy papers and paperboards.

As a result, the customer will receive samples throughout the process, and the final product can be delivered to the customer or moved straight to further processing. The process parameters and key properties of the foam forming paper samples are reported.
