Study on the Influence of Linting and Picking of Paper
Five offset papers were applied to analyze the influences of the linting and picking problem based on the measurement of paper moisture, tightness, fiber composition and fiber length. The results showed that under the same conditions of paper making with the same raw materials, the printing surface strength increased and linting and picking problem reduced when the paper moisture or tightness are appropriately increased. The paper made with wood materials has a better surface strength and printability than bamboo and straw. The paper which contain less tiny fibers and long fibers, but more medium fibers is less likely to cause the problem of linting and picking.
