Why paper finishing




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
