These masking papers are easy to tear in a straight line and have perfect barrier properties as well as the right absorption features so the paint sticks to the masking paper but does not bleed through under normal conditions. 31% of the world is covered in woods, 1.6 billion people depend on this. Between 2000 and 2012, 229.8 million acres of these woods were destroyed. In the search of durable and environmen- tal friendly solutions, Colad introduced recycled masking paper. Specially selected recycled paper is the base of Colad recycled masking paper. The fibers are smaller and easier to produce. This reduces the use of energy and water. Colad recycled masking paper is produced in accordance with PEFC, ISO 14001 and EN13432:2000 certification.
