Thickness is an important property of tissue paper and tissue products.

In the tissue industry, thickness-related parameters, such as the roll diameter of rolled products (kitchen towel)
or the stack height of folded products (paper towels) are often measured. However, the fact that not only
end-use tissue products, but also the base tissue paper from which these products are made, is the subject of
trade between companies and countries, means that there is a genuine need for a consistent measure of
thickness that can be applied to tissue products at any stage of their manufacture.

The thickness of tissue paper and tissue products is known to be dependent on the pressure applied to the
material at the time of measurement. Several different loading pressures, pressure-foot diameters and loading
speeds have been used within the tissue industry. 

THD-01 Tissue thickness tester is mainly used for tissue paper product thickness measurement. It can complete the single-layer, sheet and lamination thickness measurement. Other products like paper handkerchiefs, paper towels, napkins, kitchen roll paper are also its applications.

Test Principle

THD-01 Tissue thickness tester has two parallel, horizontal faces, flat to within 0,001 mm, between which the test piece is placed. The lower face is fixed and the upper face (pressure-foot) moveable in a direction perpendicular to the plane of the fixed face.

The upper, circular, pressure-foot has a nominal area of 10,0 cm² and is parallel to the lower face within 0.001mm.

The lower face supports the test piece, such that the test piece lies flat whilst under test.

The pressure between the two faces shall be (2,0 ±0,1) kPa .
