Flocs

Premature clots of paper fibers that form before the water-suspended pulp mixture is delivered to the forming wire on a papermaking machine. The presence of flocs results in poor paper formation. Constant agitation of the fiber solution in the paper machine's headbox prevents clots from forming.
