1. Light, thick and light. Lightweight paper has a particularly good bulk, so this paper can replace the original high-quantity paper with the same thickness, thereby saving freight and postage costs.

2. The color is natural. Lightweight paper is made of chemical pulp and does not contain optical brighteners. It is milky white or light beige due to the addition of special dyes. Compared with ordinary coated paper and offset paper, the color of light paper is darker, similar to the original color of wood pulp. . It gives people a simple and natural feeling, and reading books and periodicals printed on light paper for a long time will not cause visual fatigue.

Lightweight paper is a kind of chlorine-free paper, made of 100% pure chemical pulp, and does not contain fluorescent brighteners and other ingredients, so that the paper is slightly alkaline and can be stored for thousands of years without deterioration. Lightweight paper is uncoated, mainly composed of fiber, calcium carbonate and water. It does not pollute the environment and is a green product.
