  1. Choose your base
  2. Add a specialty barrier
  3. Layer on one or more of our paper coatings

A Quick Guide to Some of Our Paper Types

Clay-Coated Paper:

Coated with refined clay, which fills the gaps between fibers in the paper, helping seal it off from outside elements.

Wax-Coated Paper:

Durable and moisture-resistant; a thin coating of wax keeps the paper product from disintegrating when it comes in contact with any moisture (ie. grease, water).

Water-Based Coated Paper:

BiOrigin paper products are a new technology that combines the origins of paper (trees and water) with the functionality of bio-based, compostable and recyclable coatings.

Machine-Glazed (MG) Base:

An uncoated paper product that’s high-gloss on one side, and rough on the other (think, medical examination paper at the doctor’s office) that can be layered on with an antimicrobial barrier.

Creped Tissue:

A paper product that has been creped to give the sheet more stretchiness and softness (think napkins, towels, bath tissue) that can be designed to be highly porous or tightly closed. It can be highly absorbent or fluid-resistant and all can be treated to provide microbial and viral controlling properties.

Through Air Dried Tissue:

A structured tissue that is not pressed, but rather dried by blowing hot air through it to make it more fluffy and absorbent. Excellent for kitchen towels, wipers, and wherever absorbency is needed.
