1. Cigarette paper

Cigarette paper is made from thin and lightweight “rag fibers” (nonwood plant fibers) such as flax, hemp, sisal, rice straw, and esparto. The paper is available in rolls and rectangular sheets of varying sizes, and has a narrow strip of glue along one long edge. It may be transparent, colored and flavored.

2. Tissue paper (Facial/Toilet/Kitchen/Towel/Napkins)

Tissue paper is produced on a paper machine that has a single large steam heated drying cylinder (yankee dryer) fitted with a hot air hood. The raw material is paper pulp. The yankee cylinder is sprayed with adhesives to make the paper stick. Creping is done by the yankee’s doctor blade that is scraping the dry paper off the cylinder surface. The crinkle (crêping) is controlled by the strength of the adhesive, geometry of the doctor blade, speed difference between the yankee and final section of the paper machine and paper pulp characteristics.

3. Thermal Transfer paper

A means of printing or imaging utilizing a colored wax (similar to a crayon) that is melted and fused to special coated papers. Thermal transfer is utilized by some types of inexpensive color desktop printers manufactured by QMS, Océ, Seiko, and Tektronix, which have the ability to generate PostScript output.

4. OTC paper (uncoated carbonized base paper)

Lightweight, uncoated paper made from unbleached chemical and/or mechanical pulps and surfaces coated with a carbon solvent or wax so that it takes up carbon inks and releases them under pressure, duplicating the inked areas being printed.

5. PE coated paper

Polyethylene coatings are thermoplastic coatings that have excellent impact resistance, UV stability and resists stress cracking. With characteristics very similar to vinyl coatings, this coating is very environmentally friendly because it does not emit bad fumes during processing as does vinyl coatings.

6. Grease Proof

A type of paper produced from chemical pulp that has had sizing or coating materials added to make the paper impermeable to greases and oils.

7. MG Sophie paper (MG bleached sulphate/sulphate)

The sulfite process produces wood pulp which is almost pure cellulose fibers by using various salts of sulfurous acid to extract the lignin from wood chips in large pressure vessels called digesters. White paper bags suitable for sweets, produce, baked goods, haberdashery and gifts.

8. Presspan paper

Presspan is resistant to high voltage and a high capacity for impregnation with transformer oil (dielectric mix of oil-cellulose).This press paper and pressboard is available in a variety of different thicknesses and formats, and can withstand high heat loads for short periods of time.Presspahn is produced from 100% electrical grade kraft wood pulp and is a designed as a surface insulation material on cellulose for insulation class A. It can be punched, folded, cut and, in some cases, shaped as well.

9. Self-Adhesive

Having a surface coated with an adhesive and not needing the application of glue or moisture

10. Tea bag paper

Tea bag paper is related to paper found in milk and coffee filters and is a blend of wood and vegetable fibers. The latter is bleached pulp abaca hemp, a plantation banana plant grown for its fiber, mostly in the Philippines and Colombia. Some bags have a heat-sealable thermoplastic such as PVC or polypropylene as a component fiber on the inner tea bag surface

11. Wax paper base stock

Wax paper is paper that has been made moisture-proof through the application of wax. Wax paper is commonly used in cooking for its non-stick properties, and wrapping food for storage, such as cookies, as it keeps water out or in. It is also used in arts and crafts.

12. Filter paper

Filter paper comes in various porosities and grades depending on the applications it is meant for. The important parameters are wet strength, porosity, particle retention, flow rate, compatibility, efficiency and capacity. There are two mechanisms of filtration with paper; volume and surface. By volume filtration the particles are caught in the bulk of the filter paper. By surface filtration the particles are caught on the paper surface. Filter paper is mostly used because even a small piece of filter paper will absorb a significant volume of liquid

13. Decor paper

Decor papers are specialty papers used to upgrade the surface of wood-based panels. They are technically advanced and highly engineered products that provide an excellent surface for decorative printing and resin saturation for use in the production of furniture, laminate flooring and other interior and exterior architectural panels.

14. Metallized paper/board

Metallizing on paper can be done via direct metallization and transfer process. Metallized Paper provides aesthetic appeal of product and enhance barrier properties. Vacmet Metallized Board and Metallized Paper has an attractive bright metal layer that is obtained by either of the two processes, which impart a scintillating finish to it.

15. Playing card board

Cardboard consists of a number of thicknesses of paper pasted together, pressed and polished on two surfaces. Ordinary cardboard consists of two sheets of white paper with a sheet of cartridge paper between them, and the thickness of the board is determined by the stoutness of the paper. For stout cards two or more sheets of cartridge paper are interposed. Modern playing-card board is usually laminated with a black adhesive and comes in a range of weights and with matt, glazed or embossed finishes including ‘linen grain’ or ‘air cushion’ finish

16. Parchment paper

Modern parchment paper is made by running sheets of paper pulp through a bath of sulfuric acid (a method similar to how tracing paper is made) or sometimes zinc chloride. This process partially dissolves or gelatinizes the paper, a process which is reversed by washing the chemicals off followed by drying.

17. Silicon Coated paper

Silicone paper provides an effective barrier against water and most solvents, and good release from aggressive and aqueous adhesives. The nature of silicone release paper is not suitable for applications where high temperature resistance is required.
