The FCC paper “A multi-scale simulation method for the prediction of edge wicking in multi-ply paperboard” appear on the cover of the December issue of the prestigious Nordic Pulp and Paper Research Journal.

The paper was written as part of the ISOP (Innovative Simulation of Paper) project, together with our industrial partners: Akzo Nobel, Albany International, Stora Enso, and Tetra Pak. In the paper a multi-scale method to numerically predict edge penetration of liquid into paper board is described. Resistance to edge wicking is one of the most important properties of liquid packaging board, and the methods together with the accompanying software described in the paper are valuable new tools for the apriori prediction of edge wicking properties of paperboard and the simulation of filling machines in the liquid packaging board industry.
