Coated paper is a form of paper that has undergone a coating process to enhance its surface characteristics. The coating is usually applied to one or both sides of the paper and comprises kaolin clay, minerals, or polymers. Depending upon the desired effect, the coating produces a smooth, glossy, or matte appearance. Coated paper has several kinds of advantages.
