More information on coated paper
Printing on coated paper is a rigorous process that requires painting the material with a type of ink known as salsa which helps enhance the finish. We call the section of our factory where this salsa is applied the kitchen!
The main ingredients of this salsa for printing on coated paper are pigments that equal to the charges, such as calcium carbonate, to retain fineness and a superior quality.
To fix these products onto paper, compounds (such as starches, proteins, caseins, polyvinyl alcohol, latex etc.) are required that help them bind them. Other additives may also be used such as optical bleaches, defoamers, lubricants or microbicides, among others.
