Papers are generally classified into three groups according to sizing; unsized, weak-sized, and strong-sized. Unsized papers are WATERLEAF (1) ; weak-sized papers are SLACK SIZED ; and strong-sized papers are HARD SIZED . Blotting paper is an example of waterleaf, while sized newsprint is slack sized, and bond paper is hard sized.
Rosin sizing is the principal size used for machine-made papers, while gelatin is often used for handmade papers. 3.
