Steven L Edwards, Peter J Allen, Oliver P Renier: Method for making soft layered tissues. Kimberly Clark Corporation, Gregory E Croft, February 27, 1996: US05494554 (150 worldwide citation)

The formation of wet-pressed tissue webs useful for facial tissue, bath tissue, paper towels or the like is substantially improved by forming the wet tissue web in layers in which the second-formed layer has a consistency which is significantly less than the consistency of the first-formed layer. Th ...
