The objective of this research was to conduct studies of the influence of the sizing complexes dimensions and rosin sizing methods proceeding in the modes of homocoagulation and heteroadagulation on the temperature regime of paper and cardboard drying. The drying regime ensures the sintering and melting processes of coarse (existing technology) and fine (developed technology) sizing complexes with the formation of a hydrophobic film on the surface, responsible for such values indicators for glued types of paper and cardboard, as the degree of sizing by the bar method and absorbency with onesided wetting. Coarse electroneutral sizing complexes gauged 4200–6000 nm are formed in the second phase of electrolyte coagulation of hydrodispersions of modified rosin (HMR). The ratio of HMR : electrolyte is 1: 3. The rosin sizing process takes place in the mode of homocoagulation, since such complexes are not able to distribute evenly and adhere firmly to the surface of the fibers and the hydrophobic film formed of them is heterogeneous in thickness and area. Fine sizing complexes have a size of 180–220 nm and an electrokinetic potential from +30 to +50 mV. They are peptized particles formed from coagulates (2000 nm), first formed in the first area of electrolyte coagulation of HMR, when the ratio of HMR : electrolyte (first batch) is 1 : 1, and then subjected to further disaggregation (peptization) into the presence of peptide ions Al3+, introduced into the pulp with the second portion of the electrolyte in a ratio of 1 : 0.8. It has been established that reducing the size of sizing complexes from 4200–6000 to 180–220 nm due to the shift of the rosin sizing process from the homocoagulation mode to the heteroadagulation mode helps to reduce energy consumption in the drying part of paper-making and cardboard-making machines by 2–3 % or more. This process is facilitated by lowering the temperature of not only the last 4–6 drying cylinders located at the end of the second group – from 130 to 115–120 °C, but also the first 2–4 drying cylinders of the third group – from 115 to 100–105 °C.
