Kumar, P., Negi, Y. S., and Singh, S. P. (2011). "Offset printing behavior of baggase and hardwood paper sheets loaded by in-situ precipitation," BioRes. 6(1), 207-218.


Standard handsheets of bleached bagasse and hardwood pulps were prepared with calcium carbonate filler loading by conventional method and by in-situ precipitation. The handsheets were printed with an IGT printability tester. The effect of filler loading by in-situ precipitation on ink transfer, print density, and print-through was studied. For a given amount of ink on the printing disk or on the paper, the print density was greater and the print-through was less for in-situ precipitation of filler when compared with the conventional filler loading.
