The OpTiSurf measures the surface roughness size and intensity on tissue papers, soft sheets and compressible samples. These cannot be measured by traditional air leak roughness methods. Technical publications are available on the following applications:

  • sheet "cockle"

  • bathroom tissue embosssing quality

  • facial tissue softness ranking

Contact OpTest for more information.



OpTiPro (Optical Pattern Recognition) software quantifies the intensity, size and orientation of patterns in paper. The OpTiPro uses images from the Paper PerFect Formation Analyzer or the Paprican Micro-Scanner.
