Also known as
Coated kraft Paper

What is Water-Resistant, Coated Paper?

With a double-sided coating, this water-resistant paper becomes a closer alternative to plastic mailers. The coating also makes it puncture resistant. Like uncoated kraft, it's a multipurpose material for plastic-free shipping and curbside recycling. Current applications are expandable kraft mailers.

Why choose it?

  • Coating makes the paper water and puncture resistant
  • 50% post-consumer waste
  • Curbside recyclable wherever paper is accepted
  • FSC certified material available.

Why not choose it?

  • Coating is made from feed stocks derived from fossil fuels.

  • Weighs more than alternatives in different applications (such as tissue paper for void fill and LDPE for mailers), so it can cost more to ship.
