The thaw is a paper that is very tough. Alternatively, the rope is also used, but in the print shop it means the rope bow .
Origin of name
Ropes got its name from the raw material that was primarily used at the time - used ropes made of sisal and jute. In finer grades (writing paper), ropes are also called manila. Thawing is a paper that is applied about one and a half times with very long fibers, a sharp satin finish and a quarter size . Usually it is light brown to yellowish, less often bleached or intensely colored. Thawing can absorb large amounts of water without becoming wavy. The manufacture of thaw paper is a special process that only a few paper mills worldwide have mastered. The pulp is cooked and pretreated to achieve maximum hardness and burst strength . The foldability is relatively high. Thawing is often confused with soda kraft paper in the trade , but the properties are much better adjusted with thawing. Kraft paper is primarily optimized for use as cover paper, while rope is used as pressure-resistant paper.
- It is used as packaging material , partially soaked in oil . It is often used here for machine parts - example: gear wheels ; Waves ; Bolt - common.
- When printing as elevator ropes . In this way, the elastic abutment for the printing form is built up on the counter pressure - pressure cylinder or the crucible plate .
- For bookbinding work as a tough insert or hinge.
