Crepe Paper

Crepe paper is tissue paper that has been coated with sizing and then creped to create gathers.

Production: Paper that is creped is produced on a paper machine that has a single large steam heated drying cylinder (yankee) fitted with a hot air hood. The raw material is paper pulp. The yankee cylinder is sprayed with adhesives to make the paper stick. Creping is done by the yankee’s doctor blade that is scraping the dry paper of the cylinder surface. The crinkle (creping) is controlled by the strength of the adhesive, geometry of the doctor blade, speed difference between the yankee and final section of the paper machine and paper pulp characteristics.

Properties: Crepe paper and tissue are among the lightest papers and are normally below 35 g/m2. Crepe tissue paper comes in white, as well as an array of bright and pastel colors, and it may or may not bleed. The crepe ratio reflects how much the paper has shortened during creping. The figure is normally between 10 – 30 %. Creping is used to adjust the paper’s stretch and thickness, both of which have a marked effect on softness and absorbency. Creping can also be applied to specialty papers, such as microcoping in sack paper.

Applications: Crepe paper is popular for streamers and other party decorations. Props and costume accessories can be made of crepe paper. It can be soaked in a small amount of water to create a dye for Easter eggs, white cardstock, and other materials Crepe paper can also be used to make paper flowers, applique, and paper sculpture. Crepe paper is important as the backing for various types of tape, including masking tape and electrical tape. Can be used in place of corn husks to make tamales. In the former Soviet Union, undyed, unbleached crepe paper is widely used for toilet paper.Used in recovery systems in small model rocket’s.
