photographic paper

Paper used as the base for various photosensitive systems which use silver halide crystals as the light sensitive receptors. It is a carefully made paper produced either from cotton fibers or highly purified chemical wood pulp. The paper must be free of all substances, especially chemicals, which might adversely affect later processing and it must also possess high wet strength so as to permit processing in both acid and alkaline solutions. Photographic paper ranges in thickness from 0.0025 to 0.015 inch. (17 )
