The "Opera" series is a lineup of woodfree book paper renowned for successfully reducing weight by using our advanced bulking technology, while maintaining an equivalent thickness to that of conventional paper. A new pale color, "Opera Clear Max", is now being added to the existing cream and white colors that have also been popular with customers. "Opera Clear Max" maintains a high level of opacity despite its pale color, and its pale, clear color maximizes reading comfort. The paper's texture ensures a soft page-turning experience. All these advantages can be capitalized on in numerous different applications such as books and practical guides.

"Opera Clear Max" will be produced in the Otake mill.
