WHAT IS TAD?
TAD is an paper manufacturing acronym for “Through Air Dry” technology. TAD products are becoming more prevalent in the Away-From-Home markets throughout the United States. Many companies are making the investment in TAD paper products to offer more premium paper options to their customers. But, what exactly is TAD? To answer that question, we’ve gathered information from various industry experts who tell us all about TAD paper products.
TAD technology removes water during production by pulling high temperature air through the sheet. By using air, paper manufacturers are able to maintain the fiber thickness and provide up to twice the bulk and absorption capacity for the same basis weight. TAD only uses virgin fibers providing a premium, softer product. With an emboss formed during the process, TAD provides users with a product ideal for cleaning spills, wiping down surfaces and hand drying.
HISTORY OF TAD TECHNOLOGY
A bit of history about TAD technology – TAD was first used commercially in the 1960s in tissue and towel products as it was developed by P&G, Kimberly-Clark and Scott. With each company having their own unique processes, many patents were created for TAD technology. However, when these patents expired in the 90s, many more tissue manufacturers gained access to the technology and so the process became popular with retail products across the industry.
