How Are Facial Tissues Manufactured?

Facial tissues, commonly known as tissues or tissues papers, are manufactured through a process that involves several steps. The process includes the preparation of the raw materials, papermaking, converting, and packaging.

Raw Materials Preparation:

Pulp: The primary raw material for facial tissues is pulp, which can be obtained from wood fibers, recycled paper, or a combination of both. The pulp is processed to remove impurities and is often bleached to achieve the desired whiteness.
Water: Water is an essential component in the papermaking process, used for diluting the pulp and facilitating the formation of the paper sheet.


Pulp Suspension: The prepared pulp is mixed with water to create a pulp suspension.

Formation of the Sheet: The pulp suspension is then spread onto a wire mesh screen or fabric, and water is drained away, allowing the fibers to bond and form a continuous sheet.

Pressing: The sheet is pressed to remove excess water and improve its density.

Drying: The pressed sheet is dried to remove the remaining water, typically using heated rollers or air drying.


Embossing: The dried paper sheet may undergo embossing, where a pattern is pressed onto the sheet to create a textured or patterned surface, enhancing softness and appearance.

Cutting: The large paper rolls are cut into smaller rolls or sheets, depending on the intended product size.

Perforating: The tissue is often perforated at regular intervals to facilitate tearing along the desired lines.


The cut and perforated tissues are then packaged into boxes or plastic wraps for distribution and retail.
Packaging may involve additional steps such as folding, stacking, and bundling the tissues in specific configurations.

Quality Control: 

Throughout the manufacturing process, quality control measures are implemented to ensure the final product meets the desired standards. This may include checks for thickness, softness, absorbency, and other characteristics.
