Abstract : Interfiber bonding, tensile stress-strain properties, fiber collapse, and fiber-to-fiber conformability at fiber crossings were studied on handsheets composed entirely on unbeaten earlywood and latewood loblolly pine kraft fibers. Because of a better stress distribution earlywood sheets showed consistently higher tensile strength and modulus of elasticity at a given level of interfiber bonding than latewood sheets.
