BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates generally to improved cellulosic sheet materials and to a method of preparing said materials. More particularly the invention relates to cellulosic sheet materials prepared from a furnish comprising cellulosic fibers; at least one debonder selected from the group consisting of anionic and cationic surface active agents; at least one resin selected from the group consisting of acrylic emulsions and anionic styrene butadiene latexes; and, when the debonder is an anionic surface active agent, a deposition aid for the resin.

2. Description of the Prior Art The production of sheet materials from cellulosic fibers generally begins with an aqueous slurry of the fibers, said slurry being commonly referred to as a furnish. In thepreparation of sheet material the furnish is cast onto a wire surface so that the water is removed and the fibers brought into close contact with one another. While in this close contact, hydrogen bonds are formed between the hydroxyl groups of adjacent fibers resulting in the production of a sheet material, the strength of which is due to this natural fiber-to-fiber bording.

For certain applications, such as paper towels, tissues, and sanitary napkin and diaper covers it is also necessary that the sheet produced be soft, in the sense that it is sufficiently soft to the touch to be acceptable by the public. It is also essential that these soft products have sufficient strength, both for their production on conventional sheet forming equipment and for their intended use.

Several methods have heretofore been suggested for obtaining a product having the requisite softness. However, these methods, and products produced thereby, have not achieved widescale commercial success due to one, or more, of several inherent disadvantages. Those which require machine modifications cannot be run on existing, high-speed, sheet forming equipment. Others, which require a mechanical treatment of the sheet after it is formed, such as creping, perf-embossing and texturizing, result in a somewhat softer sheet but the increase in softness is accompanied by a significant decrease in tensile strength placing practical limitations on the improvement in softness which can be achieved. Chemical additives have also been employed to achieve softness in cellulosic sheet materials. Those which are applied to the formed sheet generally are difficult to apply, requiring the use of baths or sprays, and do not produce products having the desired combination of softness and strength. Chemicals which can be added to the pulp furnish prior to the sheet forming operation are easier to work with but the products produced therefrom have not heretofore possessed the desired properties of softness and strength. Certain chemical additives, commonly referred to as debonding agents, when added to the furnish interfere with the natural fiber-to-fiber bonding during the sheet forming operation. With these additives it has often been difficult to control the quality of the product produced and, al-

though certain of these additives have imparted some degree of softness to the resulting product, this improvement has been accompanied by a significant decrease in the tensile strength of the product produced. In much of the prior art, it is recognized that any increase in softness will be accompanied by a significant decrease in tensile strength, and softness is often measured by this decrease in tensile strength.

Other chemicals, such as aqueous-based dispersions of resinous materials, have also been suggested for use in cellulosic sheet materials. These chemicals have been employed primarily to increase the strength of the sheet. However, by increasing the strength of the sheet these additives also resulted in a harsher, or less soft, sheet which could only be avoided by selecting a different additive. And, here also, no significant improvement in softness has resulted.

Besides the above-mentioned problems previously employed additives have often introduced other undesirable properties, such as odor, decreased wateradsorbency, etc., into the final product.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION In accordance with the present invention, cellulosic sheet materials having improved softness and acceptable tensile strength are produced from a furnish comprising cellulosic fibers; at least one debonder selected from the group consisting of anionic and cationic surface active agents; a resin selected from the group consisting of acrylic emulsions and anionic styrene butadiene latexes; and, when the debonder is an anionic surface active agent, a deposition aid for the resin.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS In carrying out the present invention an aqueous slurry of cellulosic fibers is prepared according to any well-known method. This aqueous slurry, or furnish, is then treated with chemicals in the beater, stock chest, fan pump, headbox or at any other suitable point ahead of the fourdrinier wire, or sheet forming stage.

The chemical treatment comprises at least one resin and one debonder, as hereinafter defined. However, since the charge on the cellulosic fibers is anionic, and the resins which have been found to be useful in carrying out the present invention can also be anionic or nonionic, it is often necessary to add a third component, or deposition aid, which causes the resin to adhere to the fibers. A separate deposition aid is not necessary when a cationic surface active agent is employed as the debonder and is added to the pulp furnish prior to the addition of the resin. Neither is a deposition aid required with a cationic resin. However, to insure complete deposition of the resin onto the fibers it is especially preferred to add the deposition aid in all cases.

After the chemical treatment, sheets are prepared from the furnish according to any well-known method.

The various chemical additives employedin carrying out the present invention can be defined as follows:

Deposition Aids The deposition aids which have been found to be useful in carrying out the present invention include those compounds which are known to be useful for depositing a water-insoluble polymer onto cellulosic fibers.

These compounds include vinyl imidazoline polymers, such as those disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 3,527,719 and in British Pat. No. l,052,l l2, and polyquaternary ammonium compounds, such as those described in US. Pat. No. 2,765,229. Commercially available compounds which have been found to be particularly useful include Lufax 295, a cationic polyelectrolyte solution polymer that functions as a coupling agent in the beater addition of acrylic emulsions to cellulose and normally available from Rohm and Haas Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; as a tan powder which is a salt complex of a polyamine having a solids content of 100 percent; a pH for a 1 percent aqueous solution of 1.8 and a viscosity for a percent solids solution of 3,300 cps as determined by a Brookfield viscometer LVT at 25C, with a No. 4 spindel at 60 rpm; Resin S243, a cationic aqueous solution of a quarternary chloride solution polymer also available from Rohm and Haas; as a clear amber liquid having about 32 percent solids content, a pH of 2.0, a density at 25C of 9.0 lbs. per gallon and a viscosity of 250 cps as determined by a Brookfield LVF viscometer at C with a No. l spindel at 12 r.p.m. and Quaker 2000, a cationic, high molecular weight, quaternized ammonium imidazoline sulfate available from Quaker Chemical Corporation, Conshohocken, Pennsylvania and having a pH of about 3.4 for a 3.2 percent dilution in water at 77F; a saybolt viscosity at l00F of 2500 to 2900 seconds; a kimematic viscosity at [00F of 530 to 630 centistokes and a pour point of below 0F. The Quaker 2000 can function as both a coupler and a debonder.

The amount of deposition aid employed can be varied over a wide range depending on the type of furnish employed, the amount of resin to be deposited, and other variables associated with the sheet forming operation. lt is especially preferred to employ an amount equal to from about 0.1 percent to about 3.0 percent based on the oven dry weight of the fibers employed. To insure complete deposition of the resin on the fibers it is preferred to add up to 0.5 percent of the deposition aid after the resin has been added. When this procedure is employed the order of addition to the furnish is deposition aid, resin, deposition aid.

Resins The resins which can be employed in carrying out the present invention include acrylic emulsions and anionic styrene-butadiene latexes. These resins can be used either alone or in combination with other resins such as those which are commonly used to improve the wet strength of cellulosic sheet materials, namely the ureaformaldehyde and melamine formaldehyde type resins. Commercially available resins which have been found to be particularly useful include Rhoplex K3 a nonionic self-crosslinking acrylic emulsion available from Rohm and Haas Company, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Rhoplex P339, an anionic self-crosslinking acrylic emulsion, also available from Rohm and Haas Company as a milky white liquid having a 44 percent solids content with a pH of 4.8, a density at C of 8.8 lbs. per gallon, a glass transition temperature of +3C, a minimum film formation temperature of 0C and a viscosity at 25C of 43 cps as determined by a Brookfield Viscometer LVT employing a No. 1 spindel at 60 rpm; Goodrite 2570 X 15, an anionic, carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer containing in excess of 70 percent butadiene available from B. F. Goodrich Chemical Company, Cleveland Ohio; and Tylac RB ll 18, an anionic, carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer containing approximately 50 percent styrene from Standard Brands Chemical Corporation, Dover, Delaware. The following anionic, self-crosslinking, acrylic emulsions available from Rohm and Haas Company have also been found to be particularly useful Rhoplex E631, Rhoplex E610, and Rhoplex TR407. Other useful commercially-available resins include Pliolite 6l0, a styrene-butadiene latex from B. F. Goodrich Chemical Company, and Rhoplex E32 a nonionic, selfcrosslinking acrylic emulsion from Rohn and Haas Company. An additional resin, which has been found to be useful in carrying out the present invention, is a cationically dispersed acrylic emulsion comprising about 68 parts ethylacrylate and about 32 parts styrene.

The amount of resin employed can be varied over a wide range depending upon the properties desired in the final product, the amount of resin retained on the fibers, and other variables associated with the sheet forming operation. It is especially preferred to employ an amount of resin equal to from about 3.0 percent to about 15.0 percent of the oven dry weight of the fibers employed.

Debonders The debonders which can be employed in carrying out the present invention include anionic and cationic surface active agents. Especially preferred are cationic quaternary ammonium compounds including imidazolium compounds such as Quaker 2000 and Velvetol CHR, high molecular weight quaternized imidazolines, available from Quaker Chemical Corporation, Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. Other preferred cationic quaternary ammonium compounds are the alkyl ammonium salts such as dihydrogenated tallow dimethyl ammonium chloride, available from General Mills lnc., Chemical Division, Kankakee, Illinois as Aliquat H226; dialkylamide diethyl ammonium sulfate available from Reichold Chemicals lnc., White Plains, New York as Rycofax 618; and Rycofax 637, an amphoteric quaternary ammonium compound also available from Reichold Chemicals lnc.

Anionic surface active agents which are also preferred for use as debonders in carrying out the present invention include compounds such as sodium tetradecyl sulfate available as Tergitol Anionic 4 from Union Carbide Corporation, New York, New York and the sodium salt of sulfated nonyl phenoxy poly(ethylene oxy) ethanol available as Alipal AB436 from General Aniline and Film Corporation, New York, New York.

The amount of debonder employed can be varied over a wide range depending upon the furnish employed, the properties desired in the final product and other variables associated with the sheet forming operation. It is especially preferred to employ an amount of debonder equal to from about 0.15 percent to about 2.0 percent of the oven dry weight of the fibers employed.

The debonder may be added either before or after the resin or resin-deposition aid combination. When the furnish comprises wood pulp it is preferred to add the debonder following the deposition of the resin onto the fibers. However, when the furnish comprises wood pulp and synthetic fibers, such as rayon, for example, it is preferred to add the debonder prior to the addition of the resin or the deposition aid-resin combination.

In order to describe the present invention so that it may be more clearly understood, the following examples are set forth in which all percentages of chemical additives are based on the oven-dry weight of the pulp employed. The physical properties reported herein were obtained using the following test procedures, except as otherwise noted in the examples.

Handsheets were prepared on a standard Noble and Wood handsheet machine.

Basis weight of the sheets was determined by weighing eight sheets measuring 2 i inches X 2 A2 inches and converting the result to pounds/ream (2880 square feet).

Tensile strength was determined with a standard Instron Tensile Tester using 1 inch wide test strips, a span of 2 inches and a strain rate of 2 inches per minute.

Fold value and crush value were measured on an apparatus designed to give an indication of the softness of a sheet by measuring the force required to fold the sheet (the fold value) and the force required to crush the folded sheet (the crush value). A decrease in these values is indicative of a softer sheet. The apparatus employed to obtain these measurements comprises an inner set of circular platens and an outer set of annular platens. The platens are arranged so that there is an upper and lower member of each set. The upper circular platen has a diameter of 1.09 inches and a rounded edge having a radius of 0.062 inches. The lower circular platen has a diameter of 1.43 inches and is located directly below the upper circular platen. The upper annular platen has an inside diameter of 2.125 inches and a rounded inner edge also having a radius of 0.062 inches. The lower annular platen is of similar size and is located directly below the upper annular platen. The rounded edges of the two sets of platens are separated by a distance of 0.382 inches. The upper member of each set of platens is attached to means for clamping that set of platens together and the surfaces of all the platens are highly polished.

There is also included, below the space between the two sets of platens a circumferential ring attached to means for moving said ring through said space. The ring has an inner diameter of 1.5 inches, an outer diameter of l.75 inches and the rounded portion has a radius of 0.062 inches. Above the space is another annular platen having an inside diameter of 1.16 inches and an outside diameter of 2.062 inches. This platen is also highly polished and is attached to means for moving said platen towards the space.

In operation the sheet to be tested is placed between the upper and lower members of the two sets of platens. The inner circular set of platens is clamped to hold the sheet in place and the distance between the upper and lower members of the outer annular set is adjusted to 0.065 inches. The distance the circumferential ring will travel is adjusted to 0.250 inches and a force is applied to said ring causing it to move in an upward direction through that distance folding the sheet as it moves. The maximum force on the ring during this folding operation is recorded in grams and is referred to as the fold value of the sheet.

After the sheet is thus folded the outer annular set of plates is clamped to maintain the sheet in the folded condition. The folded sheet is crushed by, simultaneously, moving the circumferential ring down way from the sheet and moving the annular platen down onto the sheet for a distance of 0.050 inches. The maximum force on the platen as it moves through this distance is measured in grams and is referred to as the crush value of the sheet.

Sheets produced in accordance with the present invention are characterized by their improved softness which is achieved without a significant decrease in tensile strength and are useful in sanitary products such as tissues, paper towels, and sanitary napkin and diaper covers.

The following examples are set forth primarily for the purpose of illustration, and any specific enumeration of detail contained therein should not be interpreted as a limitation on the concept of this invention.
