7 Advantages of Double A Paper
Everything is in the fiber, and Double A’s high fiber content makes it the best copy paper for high-speed machines.
Here are seven reasons why:
• Good Runnability: Our precision rotary paper cutting machines significantly reduce paper jams in copiers, a quality proven in a tough ‘No Jam’ Runnability test performed under independent laboratory conditions in which 60 pages per minute were copied for 24 continuous hours.
• Printing Sharpness:Double A’s smooth surface allows for good toner transfer, making copies as sharp as
• Excellent Smoothness:Double A’s smooth surface gives it a high quality touch and makes for effortless copying, especially in high-speed machines.
• Bright Appearance:Double A’s 148-151 CIE whiteness provides high print contrast and resistance to fading.
• Enhanced Copier Performance: The sharp blades on our advanced sheet cutting machines result in a lower dust content when printing or copying, prolonging the life of office equipment.
• Two-Sided Use: The high opacity and excellent formation resulting from Double A’s high quality fiber allows double-sided use.
• Longer Storage Period for Documents: Acid free paper has longer shelf life, making it perfect for storing documents.
Double A Paper Properties
Double A has 30 million fibers per gram, a unique characteristic that gives Double A its:
• Smooth surface
• High density
• High opacity
• Low ash content
• Good formation
Smoothness is a measure of the flatness of a paper’s surface and affects how it moves through a printer or copy machine. A smoother surface also has a high-quality feel, is pleasing to the eye, and is particularly well suited to high-speed machines.
Roughness is taken into account when measuring a paper’s smoothness, and the lower the number the better
the paper. Paper roughness varies from the top of a sheet to the bottom due to gravitational forces.
Bending strength improves a paper’s contact with the copy machine and prevents tearing – the higher the bending strength the better.
Another property of good paper is density, which refers to its strength, smoothness and opacity –the higher
the density, the smoother the surface, but with lower opacity and strength.
Opacity is the measure of how much light is prevented from passing through a sheet. High opacity is usually associated with high filler content and results in a high ash reading under test conditions. Double A’s opacity comes from the unique features of its pulp, giving it high opacity with low ash content.
Ash Content is another key to good paper formation – a property that is associated with filler use, high ash content equals high filler content.
Formation is an indicator of how evenly fibers and fillers are distributed in a paper sheet. Paper with poor formation has an uneven surface with thin spots and thick spots.
Light fastness is a good indicator of a paper’s resistance to fading or change of color when exposed to sunlight –
the longer the line, the longer a paper will retain color.
