Coated Paper

Coated paper is paper which has been coated (either one side or both sides) by a compound to impart certain qualities of the paper, including weight, surface gloss, smoothness and absorbency. The coating can be dull, gloss, matte, satin or other finishes.

Coatings are applied to paper to achieve uniformity of surface. Coated paper generally produces sharper, brighter images and has better reflectivity than uncoated paper. Coated paper typically is smoother and has better ink holdout - is less absorbent than uncoated paper making it more suitable for certain types of overprint finishing techniques such as flood or spot coating with varnish or other finish coatings.

A super smooth, high gloss coated paper is cast-coated.

Photo papers for inkjet printing typically have UV coatings.
