the term that describes the process of intertwining cellulose fibers and other binding agents on a wire form and subsequently formed and dried to create a sheet or web used for writing, printing, packaging, etc.
Insulation used for telephone cable, high voltage cable, magnet wire and with a lead sheath for underground service conductors. Oil impregnated paper has improved electrical and moisture resistance properties. Paper is also used as a cable filler.
Homogenous sheet of felted cellulose fibers, bound together by interweaving and by the use of bonding agents and made in a variety of types.
Currency is one-fourth linen and three-forths cotton and contains red and blue fibers.
Medium used in many elements. A very general term applied to resin impregnated cellulose. Many types of paper or cellulose made to specification are used as a filter medium.
A thin material made from pulp from wood, old paper, or rags.
1. A fibrous material made by breaking down vegetable fibers, purifying them, interweaving them into a compact web and pressing them into thin sheets. 2. A brief, literary composition, especially on to be read at a public meeting.
a material made of cellulose pulp derived mainly from wood or rags or certain grasses
a daily or weekly publication on folded sheets; contains news and articles and advertisements; "he read his newspaper at breakfast"
a cellulose matrix containing chemicals for cell lysis and nucleic acid preservation
a sheet of wooden pulp compressed and dried
Paper is usually at least half your cost so make sure you have selected it carefully. Don't spend any more than you need to. Paper has three principle characteristics: brightness, or the amount of light the sheet reflects, opacity, the amount of light that can pass through the sheet, and finish. Finish is the surface of the paper. Like furniture, it can be shiny or dull. Uncoated sheets are either vellum or smooth. Book papers are often manufactured to a specific bulk (see PPI). [Back
A name for a range of fibrous materials in the form of a coherent sheet or web used for writing, printing, wrapping, packaging, decorating, etc.
A feltwork of randomly arrayed fibers, generally of cellulose.
A mass of interlaced cellulose fibers used as a surface.
A complex matted web of cellulose fibers
A thin, flexible material made from a pulp prepared from rags, wood, or other fibrous material, and used for writing or printing on, for packaging, as structural material, and so on.
Sheet of fibres with a number of added chemicals. According to the basic weight it can be distinguished: Paper 150 g/m2 paper-board (or board) 250 g/m2 cardboard
A Building material, usually asphalt impregnated cellulose or felt, used in roof construction to prevent the passage of air and water.
A matted web of cellulose fibers formed into a dry sheet.
Thin sheet of material made of vegetable fibres; basic weight 150 g/m2 or less. See also: paperboard, board
In general, matted or felted sheets of predominantly cellulose fibres, formed on a fine screen from a water suspension of the fibres. Papers can be hand or machine made. Traditional Western papers were made from cotton or linen rags. Modern papers are made from wood fibres. The type of wood pulp used to make the paper will influence its expected lifespan - alkaline papers are usually more stable than acidic papers; groundwood papers contain high amounts of lignin and have a short lifespan. Japanese paper is made by traditional methods from a variety of plant fibres - valued for its properties of flexibility, strength and permanence.
Paper packaging includes all forms of cardboard, cellulose and chipboard such as MDF. Common uses include sacks, boxes, cases, labels, bags and cores.
(from Gr. papyros, meaning papyrus, a type of reed.) Thin, pliable sheets of material made by filtering, couching, pressing and drying pulped vegetable fibre. According to one definition, the cut-off point between paper and cardboard is 150 grams per square metre, but material weighing as much as 250 g/sq.m. is still flexible enough to feel like paper, especially in larger sheets.
A homogeneous formation of primarily cellulose fibers which are formed in water suspension on the machine wire and bound together by weaving of the fibers and by bonding agents.
A substance made from cotton, wood or other fibrous material, usually in thin sheets, used for writing, printing or drawing.
Matted or felted sheet, usually made of cellulose fibres, formed on a wire screen from water suspension. Fine arts papers are made of pulped linen and cotton rags, while lower quality papers, such as newsprint, are made of wood pulp or a combination of wood pulp and cotton rag.
Archival prints are done on rag paper. It is Ph-balanced, and it bends rather than breaking or cracking. Arches is the most commonly used brand-name of rag paper. If a print is done on Arches paper, you will probably be able to see the Arches watermark by holding the print up to the light.
thin sheet of material made of cellulose pulp, derived mainly from wood, but also from rags and certain grasses, and processed into flexible leaves or rolls. Used primarily for writing, printing, drawing, wrapping, and covering walls.
a thin material made of pulp from wood, rags, or other fibrous materials and used for writing, printing, or wrapping.
A thin, flexible material made in sheets from a pulp of cotton linters, straw, wood or other fibrous material.
Paper is a commodity of thin material produced by the amalgamation of fibers, typically vegetable fibers composed of cellulose, which are subsequently held together by hydrogen bonding. While the fibres used are usually natural in origin, a wide variety of synthetic fibers, such as polypropylene and polyethylene, may be incorporated into paper as a way of imparting desirable physical properties. The most common source of these kinds of fibers is wood pulp from pulpwood trees, largely softwoods and hardwoods, such as spruce and aspen respectively.
