Any paper merchants about?

No, not a normal question about where to get the cheapest paper, a technical one.

Anyone know of a scource of Biblio paper 40 or 50gms? Or any other non-chlorine beached paper of that style without UV dyes (optical brightners.

Have you had a look at the 80gms paper in Morrisons - not at all bad for £1.74 (or was it £1.94? - one or the other) for a ream . Perfect for my Brother HL1230 Laser B & W.

Here's the rub.
I don't want it for printing on! It is cut into small squares and folded 4 times to make sachets for powdered medicine. Thats why I need a thin grade 40 or 50 grams per square metre, also it is impregnated with alcohol containing the medicine which is why I need a non-chlorine beached grade, also without the UV brighteners that are in normal paper to make it look whiter.I have found that the UV dyes dissolve in the alcohol and migrate to one corner of the paper and create a blue stain.
Biblio paper is a special thin but strong grade of paper that is used for printing books that have many pages and need to last a long time - Bibles - hence its name!

Do you have a "tame" printer you can ask?
He may not handle the stuff but will probably know who does, and could buy some for you.

(Faded schoolboy French... I think the French word fo a library is Biblioteque or close! That to me implies best paper for libary archives.)

Diaries and dictionaries are printed on thin paper - perhaps contact those printers?
