W is Wet Strength
Wet Strength is imparted into paper using synthetic resins during paper manufacturing. It allows paper to be exposed to extremes of moisture and water. Paper is classified with "wet strength" if its ratio of wet to dry strength is 15% or more. You may need a paper with wet strength in applications like a wine label or placemat. These durable sheets are a great solution for menus, instruction manuals, i.d. cards and wall charts.
