air-dried

Handmade- and the better machine-made papers dried in a current of air, either at normal or elevated temperatures, as distinguished from paper which is dried by contact with heated rolls. This method of drying reduces stresses, including DRIED-IN STRAIN , which are imposed on paper while drying, because the sheet is allowed to dry, and therefore contract, at a slower rate.
