Wide Format Translucent Papers

Posted by

Transparent Paper (known as Translucent) for Wide Format Inkjet Printing Paper has often been used for many reprographic copying uses. It allows light to pass through the paper media and has been used for a variety of applications. Here are some short cuts to Transparent Paper or Translucent Paper as it is called.

Wide-FormatTransulect paper has been also called tracing paper. HP had this tracing paper that they discontinued at one time and many have tried the translucent bond tring for the same results. Tracing paper is paper made to have low opacity, allowing light to pass through. Originally developed for architects and design engineers to create drawings which could be copied precisely using the diazo copy process, it found many other uses; the description evolved to include transparent paper. The original use for drawing and tracing was largely superseded by technologies which do not require diazo copying or manual copying (by tracing) of drawings.

The transparency of wide format paper is achieved by careful selection of the raw materials and the process used to create transparency. Cellulose fiber forms the basis of the paper, usually from wood species but also from cotton fiber. This material has a refractive index close to 1, which makes the material translucent to normal light. However, in the paper-making process, the spaces between the fibers provide interfaces for the light to be refracted, therefore creating a paper with relatively high opacity. Often, paper contains other filler materials to enhance opacity and print quality. For tracing or translucent paper it is necessary to remove any material which obstructs the transmission of light.

Translucent Bond allows light to pass through. Materials which do not allow the transmission of light are called opaque.The opposite property of translucency is opacity.

100-product-satisfaction-wide-format-paperTranslucent bond media may appear to be somewhat clear, with the overall appearance of one color, or any combination leading up to a brilliant spectrum of every color. When light encounters translucent bond, it can interact with it in several different ways. These translucent bond interactions depend on the wavelength of the light and the position of the translucent bond. Photons interact with translucent bond by some combination of reflection, absorption and transmission.

Translucent bond can be an economical alternative to vellum and used for reproducible drawings and check plots to provide exceptional resolution and dense black areas. Our Translucent Bond Rolls and sheets are designed to resist paper jams when used correctly and this translucent bond paper is the ideal choice for producing high-quality, economical masters for diazo and xerographic reproductions in the home or office.
