We conducted a measurement to evaluate a set of facial tissue paper by using PhabrOmeter-S, a special model with very high sensitivities. Each sample had three repeats. All these facial tissue papers are single ply and not embossed. Sample EM 200 was not treated and set as the control (reference sample), and the others were coated on one side with different formulas.
The following shows the extraction curves of the 7 facial tissues with coated side tested.
The PhabrOmeter test result for the 7 facial tissue attributes listed in the following table:
Remark: the values in table is sorted by the Softness attribute.
From the above table you can see the control tissue's values are at middle somewhere for all three attributes. Since EM 200 is the control, we can use its Softness value as a threshold to group the samples.
All facial tissues at the right side of the red desh line have a Softness values worse than that of EM 200 and are thus not qualified.
Likewise, we can judge the tissues based on the Smoothness of EM 200, and for the Stiffness.
Based on the above results, we can conclude that the treatments for EM 273 and EM 288 have impacted their tactile sense most severely.
