What You Will Learn:

  • Basics of tissue sheet structure and properties, and how the manufacturing process affects performance and design.
  • The effect of fiber raw materials on tissue structure and properties, and how to select and apply them to achieve product goals.
  • The functions of chemicals in tissue manufacture and how to apply them to increase machine/product performance.
  • How each tissue machine process creates/effects tissue structure and properties.
  • The most important variables controlling product quality/variability.

Professional Development Credits

Justification ToolkitAttendance Justification Toolkit

We understand it can be challenging to ask for approval to attend TAPPI training events, so we've created materials to assist you with the approval process and in making a strong case for the investment.

Before the Event:  Prepare your Justification.
It's important for you to communicate that attending a TAPPI  course is a strategic investment in your training and development, and a cost-effective way to help you do your job better.  You'll meet others who experience the same day-to-day challenges, meet face to face with technical experts and gain an advantage in the industry from the influx of new ideas, innovations and solutions.  The materials below will help you organize the information that will provide the summary of course instruction, associated costs and value that your organization will gain from this training.

After the Event:  Follow-up.
After you return from the course, complete and submit a report to summarize your experience and key takeaways. They'll remember the extra effort.

Your preparation will help you earn the greatest benefit from TAPPI training.  In many cases, the work you put in beforehand can also help you determine what information that you want or need to learn from the experts who will assemble to lead this instruction.  The interaction with your manager or supervisor can be a productive process to go over some of the challenges that your organization would like to tackle.
