Tissue paper is a collective term for thin types of paper with a mass per unit area of less than 30 g / m 2 . Because of its small thickness, it is mostly transparent . It can contain up to 100% recycled fibers. For applications with special requirements, tissue paper can be produced chlorine-free , wood-free , acid-free and / or corrosion-neutral .

Historically, the term can also be used for paper made from silk cocoons .
