Glassine paper (Glassing paper) is a kind of paper with special optical properties, which is characterized as being between completely opaque and fully transparent, allowing light to partially penetrate and making the contents invisible, which not only protects the privacy of the contents, but also adds a sense of mystery and artistic effect to the packaging or display. The production of such papers usually involves special manufacturing processes and material selection to ensure proper transparency, strength, and other physical properties.

Features

  1. moderate transparency: not opaque like ordinary paper or fully transparent like film, it allows light to pass through softly.
  2. Physical properties: Depending on the type and use, Glassine paper may have different thicknesses, strengths and breakage resistance, and some are also oil-, water- or moisture-resistant.
  3. Copying properties: certain substances may be added during the papermaking process to improve the smoothness and uniformity of the surface for printing or writing.
  4. printing processing performance: suitable for a variety of printing techniques, including offset printing, flexographic printing, etc., and require the use of specific types of inks to ensure good adhesion and drying effect.

Applications

  • Envelope and stamp encapsulation: used to protect stamps and provide secure encapsulation.
  • Photo and artwork packaging: as a protective layer or liner for photographs, illustrations, paintings and other works.
  • Food packaging: such as candy, snacks, biscuits and other commodities of the inner or outer packaging, increase the visual appeal of goods.
  • Pharmaceutical packaging: used as drug manuals, labels or internal packaging materials.
  • Clothing Packaging: Glassine paper as a compartment in high-grade clothing boxes, which is water and oil resistant and enhances the texture of the packaging.
