Coated papers are paper that are coated with matte finishes, glossy and semi-gloss. Coated paper is treated with a mixture of chemicals and materials to improve surface properties such as gloss, weight, smoothness, and ink retention. The coating materials typically used are clay, calcium carbonate, kaolinite, bentonite, and talc. Polymers, such as polyethylene and polyolefin, are used to impart waterproof and tear strength characteristics. Moreover, the coating material is mixed with certain chemical additives, such as resins and dispersants, to enhance wet strength and UV resistance. The coating makes the base paper less porous, which is ideal for printing applications. Product demand is also propelled by rising impact of advertisements in media such as newsprints, magazines, brochures, and catalogs. Coated papers consists of a layer of clay or polymer applied on either or both sides. Such paper sheets result in brighter and sharper images in printing, and also offers better reflectivity compared to uncoated variants. The layer also adds a glossy and shining texture to the paper, giving it a professional touch to be used in magazines and other publications.
