Did you know that PaperTyger durable papers positively contribute to a wide range of applications? Here we look at 3 significant advantages of PaperTyger products that prove why.
In the paper industry we come across lots of references to waterproof and water-resistant materials. The big question is: What’s the difference? Let’s take a closer look at the differences between the two terms and what is best suited for your application.
When paper gets wet, it becomes weak and tears. Even a thick stack of paper can tear easily when wet! To many this natural occurrence is not an issue. But for suppliers who use paper to produce a range of consumer products, this poses problems.
Rather than businesses investing a yearly investment in products, why not choose an application that lasts?
Durable papers are papers and paperboards that have undergone specific methods such as coating or laminating to achieve enhanced, crisp graphics and embossing effects.
As most paper is made from trees, a typical piece of paper is composed mostly of cellulose wood fibers. These fibers are reinforced and fused by strong hydrogen bonds.
Water resistant paper refers to paper products that are designed to withstand incidental or light contact with water. These products can be used in wet or outdoor environments. Water resistant papers will survive light contact with water, but they are not waterproof. However, these products can be designed in a way that gives them comparable qualities to synthetic waterproof papers.
