Papermakers' wet-strength resins have been added to felted glass fibers as to increase the strength of the fibers.

On the basis that a stronger sheet of paper made from glass fibers could be put to many uses, experiments were of two types. First, an excess of wet-strength resins were added to the fibers. Second, handsheets made of one hundred per-cent glass fibers were dipped into a two per-cent resin tub-sizing solution.

Favorable results were obtained in both cases.
