Unless you live your life from one scuba dive to the next, you probably don’t think about waterproof paper that often. After all, what place does waterproof paper have in the average office work environment? You might be surprised that the answer is not “no place,” but that waterproof paper can provide a surprising array of beneficial uses across a great many industries. But those benefits can vary depending on the waterproof paper you choose. At TerraSlate, we firmly believe our waterproof paper products are the best. After all, we poured all of our focus into creating a product that is easy to use and works as well as we say. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s how TerraSlate waterproof paper stacks up against other options:
Waterproof Paper Options
Waterproof paper isn’t one homogenous category that comes in a range of sizes and colors. Each manufacturer uses a different process to create waterproof paper with different uses and benefits. For example, iGage makes a waterproof/weatherproof paper that is specifically designed for printing topographical maps. It still counts as a waterproof paper option, but you aren’t likely to find much use for that around the office unless you work for a national park or a similarly outdoorsy occupation.
We believe waterproof paper should be more than just paper that resists water. That’s why we designed our products to also include the following benefits:
- Grease, solvent, and chemical resistance
- Durability — without compromising on waterproof benefits
- Easy to use and customize
- Better compatibility with multiple printing/writing materials
- Variety in size, color, and paper weight
Our waterproof paper was developed with a comprehensive set of benefits to make sure that our products provide real-world usefulness — not just a novelty factor. When it comes to actual applications, here’s what makes our waterproof paper products stand out:
Liquid-Proof, Not Just Waterproof
In the real world, water isn’t the only liquid that paper products will come into contact with and need protection against. A business flyer posted outdoors is just as likely to get splashed with mud or sprayed with snow-melt chemicals as it is likely to be rained or snowed on. A safety notice in a restaurant kitchen may get splashed with scalding-hot oil or sloshed with cleaning solvents. In order to be truly versatile and useful, waterproof paper should be more than just waterproof. We created our products to repel grease as well as most chemicals and solvents, not just water. How many other waterproof paper products can make the same claim?
Waterproof paper should work like standard paper, but better. The major downside to other waterproofing methods like lamination is the lack of durability. If you fold a laminated piece of paper, odds are good the protective plastic will split down the side and your laminated document won’t be waterproof any longer. With TerraSlate waterproof paper, you can roll, fold, bend, and otherwise manipulate each sheet without it losing any waterproof benefits. After printing, our paper is totally colorfast, so you don’t have to worry about damage to your content. Our waterproof paper will remain colorfast even if you cut it in half, giving you much greater flexibility for whatever project you need.
In that vein, TerraSlate waterproof paper is also made to hold up to a lot of rough uses. We want our products to hold up even in environments that are typically dangerous to paper, such as at construction sites or for military training. Our waterproof paper is also rip-proof. Check it out in action here! It takes a lot of effort to damage our paper. It can still be cut with scissors, cutting table, or an X-Acto knife, but it’ll hold up against rough handling — so no need to worry if it gets run over by a bulldozer! Yes, there are more mundane benefits too. Just think about how much neater materials will be when you don’t have to worry about protecting your paper against rips if it’s kept in a 3-ring binder.
When we talk about durability, physical force isn’t the only concern. Heat can be just as damaging, especially to paper products. TerraSlate waterproof paper products are heat resistant up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. We don’t recommend trying to set our paper on fire, just like you’d avoid doing with standard tree-pulp paper; however, if you need a paper product that can hang out in a hot kitchen without smudging, we’ve got you covered.
Ease of Use
What good is having paper that isn’t easy to use? Pretty useless, we think. We made our waterproof paper as easy to use as a standard sheet of copy paper. Whether you choose our waterproof printer paper or grab a ream of our 3-hole-punch lined paper, you’ll enjoy the same ease of use. All of our products can be easily printed using a standard at-home or office laser printer. You can even use a copy machine, LED printer or digital printing press.
We developed our waterproof paper to be colorfast and fade-proof without any additional hassle. Unlike some of the waterproof paper products available, there aren’t any post-printing finishing processes necessary to get the full benefits of TerraSlate waterproof paper products. Simply print (or write) and go!
We don’t want you to feel restricted to only one type of printer, either. Our waterproof paper works with copy machines and digital presses as well. That way, when you have a larger job — in size or in scope — you can still get things printed quickly and easily. Make a stack of reusable worksheets for your classroom, or print a stack of flyers for an upcoming community event and hang them outdoors. Whatever your need, our waterproof printer paper, flyers, posters, and even adhesives can be printed en masse with as much ease as you would print your content on standard paper products.
The waterproof, colorfast benefits aren’t restricted to printed material either. TerraSlate waterproof paper will also hold tight to ballpoint pen ink! And, because mistakes happen, you can easily write on our paper products with pencil and erase it — so yes, our waterproof paper can be used underwater or in the middle of a rain forest if that’s what you need!
