Frequently asked questions

What is glassine paper?

Glassine paper is a smooth and translucent paper that is air, water and grease resistant. Glassine paper is made from 100% wood-pulp through a unique process called supercalendering; a paper finishing process that involves the paper being run through a series of polished metal rollers under high pressure to create a smooth, glossy surface.

Is glassine paper durable?

Yes, glassine paper is known for its durability despite its thin and lightweight nature. It's often used for packaging delicate items because it offers a level of protection against moisture, grease, and air without being bulky. Generally, glassine paper is tear-resistant and can withstand moderate handling and storage conditions.

Is glassine paper water-resistant?

Glassine is water-resistant, but isn’t fully waterproof. Glassine paper bags are commonly used as inner packaging to protect the product being packaged. We suggest exploring one of our mailer bag options for transit.

Can glassine paper be recycled?

Yes, our glassine pouches, envelopes and bags are kerbside recyclable and biodegradable, making them a great alternative to waxed paper, plastic poly bags or films.
