Copy paper

A good-quality, smooth, uniform, white paper with good reflectivity. Early photocopy papers had a surface emulsion layer that was sensitive to light. Current papers used in photocopy machines do not have the emulsion layer, but rather just a smooth, low porosity surface. The papers must be capable of holding a charge and have good heat resistance.
