is a high quality durable writing paper
similar to bank paper
but having a weight
greater than 50 g/m2
. The name comes from it having originally been made for documents such as government bonds
. It is now used for letterheads
and other stationery
and as paper for electronic printers
. Widely employed for graphic work involving pencil, pen and felt-tip marker, bond paper can sometimes contain rag fibre pulp, which produces a stronger, though rougher, sheet of paper. Nowadays, however, bond paper is currently known as being a smooth white sheet commonly made from normal eucalyptus pulp.
UK Government specifies thickness of 115 µm.
