Lightweight-coated (LWC) paper is made from mechanical pulp. The mechanical pulping process uses logs or wood chips to mechanically separate the wood fibers, which are used to make paper. These lightweight papers are single coated and typically weigh between 36-70 GSM for the standard brightness but can be 57-90 GSM for higher gloss and whiteness which leads to higher brightness and more vibrant color printing. LWC papers are typically used for heat-set web offset and rotogravure printing of magazines, brochures and catalogues.
