But before it can be used for most purposes, it must first be put through several processes to clean and bleach. It is then passed through a filtration process in order to remove all the harmful particles and a bleaching solution is used to whiten it. The pulp is then put through several more machines designed to make it into paper. It is then combined with resin which makes the bond stronger so that different types of paper can easily be made. During this process, layers are made and in between those layers, small particles or tiny spaces are created to pass air from that so it can absorb water. It is then run through the rollers for the rolling process to give heat and dry it.
