Handsheets prepared from a bleached southern pine kraft pulp were dried at 73, 150, and 200F under four degrees of restraint. Analysis of stressstrain data from tension tests revealed that increasing either drying temperature or restraint during drying increased the tensile properties, and that restraint had the greater effect on modulus of elasticity, tensile strength, and stretch.
