Water Soluble Paper and Dissolvable Products
Just Like Real Paper
Our water soluble paper looks, feels and tears just like ordinary paper. You can write on it, photocopy onto it, emboss it and print on it via a variety of methods.
You can also laminate it, corrugate it, perforate it, and make it into envelopes, pads, computer paper, adhesive labels and more.
This product is heat sealable, it can be made into bags, pouches or form-fill and seal roll stock. We have combined our lightweight face stock product with a PVA (Polyvinyl Acetate) coating. With this coating, the paper is able to heat seal itself together using any kind of form fill and seal machine.
What It's Made Of
Our water soluble paper and tape is cellulose based (finely ground tree pulp). The paper is non-toxic, biodegradable and 100% recyclable.
Different products are available in several grades and sizes to meet all of your requirements. We stock 60gsm lightweight paper, 126gsm heavyweight paper, and 60gsm heatsealable paper (with the adhesive for a total weight of 105 gsm). We can assist you in determining the right weight for your particular application.
How It Works
Products made of this material will dissolve in any temperature of water, leaving no residue behind. Agitation (stirring, providing a forced flow of water) helps to break down the dissolvable fibers. It is 100% dispersible in water in 30 seconds or less.
Printing on Water Soluble Paper
Just about any printing method will work with this paper including: inkjet or laser computer printers, digital press, flexo, dry offset presses and more.
We recommend water or soy based inks to keep with the solubility of the product, however some applications do not require this. These products will still dissolve without using water or soy based inks, but it will take the fibers longer to break down. Other technical information can be found in the MSDS and technical data sheets.
These products are not FDA approved and cannot be eaten or ingested but can be used for many different applications such as
