Nota de aplicación

Paper that is treated and embossed to simulate the appearance of true parchment derived from the skin of animals. Vegetable parchment is a tough translucent paper made from slightly beaten chemical wood pulp and/or cotton fibers. The fiber sheet is immersed in acid baths of diminishing strength to render it semi-transparent. Vegetable parchment is resistant to grease and solvents and has high wet strength. It may be coated on one side with silica to produce a smooth, nonabsorbent printing surface, often used for offset lithography or silk-screen printing.
