Who we are

ICO Tissue is the branch of a family business existing since 1952, with a strong history of corrugated packaging manufacturing and with over 40 years of experience in this sector.

In 2013 ICO Tissue undertook a new challenge by acquiring the TAD tissue paper Facility located in Alanno, a village in the Abruzzo hinterland (Italy).

Products

In Alanno Facility we produce Jumbo Rolls from 19 gr/m2 (11.67 lb/3000 sq.ft.) to 30 gr/m2 (18.43 lb/3000 sq.ft.) for Bath Tissue and Paper Towel Roll width max: m. 2,8 (110 in) single or 2 plies.

Technology utilized: High Topographic wire for high bulk and Standard wire for low bulk.

TAD Technology

The TAD (Trough Air Drying) technology produces the highest quality tissue available in the market. It applies a process where the web is dewatered and dried by non-compressive means, thereby avoiding the compaction that occurs during wet-pressing of the web in the conventional process.

DRY CREPE VERSUS T.A.D.

TRADITIONAL PROCESS (DRY CREPE)

TRADITIONAL PROCESS (DRY CREPE)

Dry-crepe tissue technology, which involves pressing of the sheet when it is in a wet state, is the most common method of tissue manufacture. This is often called the “conventional” process because of its widespread use throughout the world. In this process fibers are stressed by a mechanical process  (fiber is creped before it is fully dried) which reduces the volume and performances of the fibers.

TAD Process

TAD Process

The double hot air fan system makes water evaporate. This dryng process makes the paper thicker, stronger, softer.
Moreover, the additional TAD benefits  improve the paper absorbency of up to 50% and the fiber saving  nearly 20%, which is equivalent in sheet sizes and appearance.
