The need for converting fragrances

For tissue producers, facial grades in particular, there is a strong need to differentiate their products in the marketplace. One method of differentiation is by application of a fragrance during the converting operation.

Application Areas

Encapsulated fragrances are applied as received to the dry facial tissue. Add on rate is dependant upon desired effect but is generally 0.25 – 0.5 gsm. Printing or transfer roll is the preferred method of application for these encapsulated fragrances because they are the most accurate.


Amazon Papyrus has a range of fragrances including micro-encapsulated fragrances. These products entraps micron size droplets of fragrance inside a polymeric shell. The shell ruptures only when the tissue is pulled from the packaging and “scrunched” thus releasing the fragrance. The key advantage is a controlled fragrance release at the point of use.
