A thin, translucent paper used for typewriter carbon copies, or as tissue overlay for correction or protection of other work. It is produced from chemical and/or rag pulp, the rag pulp content generally ranging from 25 to 1005. The finish may be dull or glazed, and basis weights are 7 to 9 and sometimes 10 pounds (17 X 22�). Manifold paper is also used for map overlays and, in a slightly waxed form, for interleaving tissue.
