The bark material is soaked in water, or in modern methods boiledso that it breaks down into a mass of fibres. As paper was less reactive to humidity, the heavy boards were not needed.

The differences among various grades and types of paper are determined by: 1 the type of fibre or pulp, 2 the degree of beating or refining of the stock, 3 the addition of various materials to the stock, 4 formation conditions of the sheet, including basis weight, or substance per unit area, and 5 the physical or chemical treatment applied to the paper after its formation.
