Abstract

To produce high strength handmade paper, handmade was reinforced by jute fibre along with/without internal additives (rosin, wax etc.), external additive such as Microcrystalline Cellulose(MCC) suspension. Optimum result was obtained when MCC suspension was applied as external additive along with reinforcement . The strength was increased by 34.69 % due to reinforcement and application of MCC suspension as external additive. The application of rosin along with reinforcement did not play any a significant role in imparting strength and application of wax emulsion hampered the strength of paper.
