Prehydrolysis kraft (PHK) pulps account for more than half of the global market of dissolving pulp. Characterized by high reactivity toward dissolution, their performances can still be improved by activation treatments. This study compares the dissolution kinetics in cupriethylenediamine of a hardwood and a softwood PHK pulps before and after their activation by high-solid-content mechano-enzymatic treatments. Three enzyme combinations were tested: endoglucanase (E), xylanase and mannanase (XM), and endoglucanase, xylanase, and mannanase (EXM). Xylanase and mannanase reduced the hemicellulose content of only hardwood (by max. 2.4%). Mixing and carbohydrate depolymerization decreased the dissolution time of hardwood and softwood pulps by a maximum of 63 and 30% with E, 37 and 16% with XM, and 44 and 30% with EXM, respectively. The shortening of the dissolution time was partially hindered by hornification, which increased with hemicellulose degradation. Interestingly, XM accelerated the dissolution while preserving a high weight-average molecular mass.
