Abstract: Acacia was refined in an industrial-sized conical refiner and compared with refining of eucalyptus. Co-refining of acacia and softwood was also investigated and compared with separate refining. The refining action was evaluated as changes in WRV, fibre length and fibre defects (measured as kinks) and tensile properties. The development of SR-number and water retention value, WRV, indicated that the Acacia pulp was more slowly refined than eucalyptus pulps. There were no systematic differences in fibre shortening and fines generation between the pulps. Some fibre straightening occurred during refining but differences between pulps remained after refining.
