This study shows the relatively small effect that pigment particle packing has on properties of the coated sheet. An attempt was made to vary the degree of flocculation of the coating without effecting its other properties. The test run on the coated sheets were brightness, opacity, glass and K & N ink absorption. The results showed no change in both brightness and opacity with an increase in flocculation, and only slight trends in decrease in glass and K&N absorption as the flocculation increased.
