Arches 88 300gsm

The ideal paper for Screen Printing and Lithography!

Arches 88 paper is a 100% cotton, mould made and buffered paper. It has a smooth surface, with four deckle edges and a registered watermark. Highly recommended for screen-printing.

Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process): quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is homogeneous and has good dimensional stability, an essential quality for the screen-printing process, which sometimes requires the application of several colours in succession. Only paper making on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.

Uses: screen printing, intaglio, engraving, letterpress, blind-embossing, hot-foil stamping, lithography

Texture: exceptionally smooth, satiny surface

Colour: very white colour ideal for screen-printing

Special Formulation: unsized. Its absorbent capacity is very high, which avoids setting-off. Ideal medium for screen-printing. Also suitable for the gravure process and lithography (as long as the paper is not soaked)

Conservation: with alkaline reserve, acid-free, no optical brightening agents (permanent in accordance with ISO 9706)
