What is coated paper?
All coated papers are composed of a cellulose substrate on the surfaces (sides) of which a series of paint layers (coatings) are applied that prepare the paper to receive ink (color) during the printing process.
Coated papers are always white, though they can also be found in ivory.
Is Creaset a woodfree or mechanical pulp-based coated paper?
The range of Creaset papers is made up exclusively of woodfree (WF) coated papers. This name refers to the manufacturing of paper with cellulose pulp that has been subjected to chemical treatment to obtain a high level of whiteness.
Is Creaset ECF?
Yes. All Creaset range papers are manufactured with ECF (Elementary Chlorine Free) woodfree pulp. In other words, chlorine gas is not used in the whitening sequence of the cellulose, in this way eliminating effluent dioxins.
