Toilet paper Zeva (Zewa): customer reviews
In the 21st century, toilet paper is a sanitary and hygienic paper product intended for daily household use. The main requirements imposed by consumers for this type of products are as follows: reasonable price, softness, good absorbency, quick solubility in sewage, strength, ease of use.
What Toilet Paper Is Made of
Three types of raw material are used for the production of toilet paper.
- The highest-quality sanitary-hygienic paper (SGB) is made from natural wood pulp. It is safe, environmentally friendly, completely soluble in water. It differs in purity of color (without gray shades).
- The raw material can be recycled waste paper, which is first purified, then ground and washed with water. The longer the flushing lasts, the whiter and better the paper will be. The cost of products from such materials is much lower. But the paper often remains greyish, coarser, less soluble in the sewage system.
- Mixing of the first two types of raw materials is also practiced.
In the Russian Federation there are certain standards that toilet paper must comply with - GOST R 52354-2005.
Requirements for sanitary and hygienic paper
It is important that the paper used for sanitation and hygiene purposes has a number of special properties. First of all, its safety for human health is taken into account. Paper products are also subject to certain technical requirements.
Toilet paper (GOST R 52354-2005) should have a roll width of 9 cm, and the area of one sheet is 110 cm 2 (deviations not more than 5% are allowed). The fiber composition of products can contain cellulose, wood pulp, chemical fibers, waste paper.
It is allowed to have holes, folds of 3-7 mm in the amount of 1:10 (unit / sheet) or 4:30 (unit / m). Separation of sheets should be carried out precisely along the perforation line. The layers can not be displaced more than 3 mm relative to each other.
The presence of oil stains, streaks of contaminated water, uneven or dirty edges is not allowed.
Manufacturers of toilet paper are required to correctly pack (completely into paper or film) and label their products. The label must include detailed information about the product. Namely: by whom, when, where and from what (raw materials, impregnation, coloring substances) it is produced; number of rolls in the package; size of sheets (length of paper tape); method of utilization; compliance with the standard or technical specification; shelf life.
The largest manufacturers of toilet paper in Russia
Residents of the Russian Federation use more than 230,000 tons of toilet paper per year.

However, since 2013 there has been a significant increase in the needs and production of toilet paper in our country.
In the Russian Federation there are about 100 plants for the production of sanitary-hygienic paper (SGB). The largest of them are:

What paper do Russians choose
Residents of rural areas use mostly cheap single-layered paper of gray color.
