Preliminary investigation produced limited information on the effect of various deinking solutions and concentrations upon the strength of fiber. Experimentation indicated that deinking does have a destructive effect upon the strength of fiber. This effect correlates to the temperature and the amount of chemical used. Also indicated is the fact that a mixture of Sodium hydroxide and Sodium carbonate has less of a destructive effect than either of these alone.
