To produce high strength handmade paper, handmade was reinforced by jute fibre along with/without internal additives (rosin, wax etc.), external additive such as Microcrystalline Cellulose(MCC) suspension. Optimum result was obtained when MCC suspension was applied as external additive along with reinforcement .The strength was increased by 34.69 % due to reinforcement and application of MCC suspension as external additive. The application of rosin along with reinforcement did not play any a significant role in imparting strength and application of wax emulsion hampered the strength of paper.
