Description

A paper with a smooth, glasslike finish. The gloss is obtained by treating the fabric or paper with starch, glue, wax or synthetic resins followed by heat-pressing between two rollers, one of which is moving faster than the other. Glazed papers are used for book covers, advertisements, decorative wrapping paper and bags.
