Why paper finishing

 

General

 

In general, paper is coated to increase its value.

 

But it can be also about a security issue or preparation of paper for its later function (For example, you could never fill milk in a bag made of newspaper).

 

An uncoated paper (as for example newspaper pages) is not water- or dirt-proof, is quite boring without any accentuation and is neither stable nor resilient.

 

For that reason:

 

  • you get black fingers when reading a newspaper
  • the picture in your newspaper do not have any shine
  • paper boats sink after a certain period of time
  • paper hats are not water-proof
