Use of paper in these conditions can lead to illegible printing and paper jams, and can shorten the life of the machine.
  • Page 35: Paper Weight Equivalence Table

    Smoothness The paper should have a smooth, uncoated surface. Paper with a rough or sandy surface can cause blank spaces in the printed output. Paper that is too smooth can cause multiple feeding and fogging problems. (Fogging is a gray background effect.) Basis Weight Basis weight is the weight of paper expressed in grams per square meter (g/m²).
  • Page 36: Moisture Content

    Moisture Content Moisture content is defined as the percent ratio of moisture to the dry mass of the paper. Moisture can affect the paper’s appearance, feed ability, curl, electrostatic properties, and toner fusing characteristics. The moisture content of the paper varies with the relative humidity in the room.
