Welcome to our Tissue Division page. The Division consists of hundreds of technical professionals who work in the manufacture and converting of tissue products around the world. The Division's goal is to create a more knowledgeable tissue workforce in all markets through education, exchange of peer-reviewed, noncommercial technical information and networking. New members are always welcome.
