Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2773564A1] The absorbent paper has one embossed zone to give a ground weft pattern, where the number of embossings is \-30 per cm<2> in one embossed zone, at one height level (H1) from the plane of the embossing. At least one further pattern is formed in other embossed zones, with a height level (H2) which is greater than the height (H1) of the first zones. The height (H2) of the embossing in the second zones is expressed as H2 <= 1.2\*H1. The mean dia. of the disks inscribed in a further zone without embossings is greater than the mean dia. of the disks inscribed between the embossings at the ground weft pattern, and pref. twice and especially three times the dia. Each element of the second pattern has at least two of the further zones without embossing, adjacent to and defined by the separated embossings. The peaks of the separated embmossings are equal to the dimensions of the embossings in the first zone. The second zone has a calendered surface at least partially. The embossings are within the paper ply structure, and the two plys are at least partially bonded together. An Independent claim is included for a machine to produce the paper with at least one non-distorting cylinder. It has one zone with at least 30 projetions/cm<2>, and a second zone without projections, with the base of both zones at the same level. The mean dia. of the disks inscribed at the second zone is larger than in the first zone. Preferred Features: The second zones are adjacent, and separated from each other by separate embossings. The machine has a cylinder with a resilient mantle cladding, to work with the rigid embossing cylinder. The resilience of the mantle cladding gives it a contact with the base of the second zones, without being in contact with the base of the first zone. The rubber material of the resilient mantle cladding gives two penetration depths for the embossing projections at the rigid cylinder. The resilient mantle cladding allows the paper material to make contact with the base of the engraving for the second zone.
