Pritchard Paper’s double-sided Perforated Kraft Papers are converted from the highest quality virgin 44# basis-weight paper. Our 2 Way Perf is primarily used for cutting fabrics that have the potential to fuse while being cut. As your high-speed cutting knives slice through fabrics such as nylon, polyester, or water-resistant materials, the 2 Way Perf provides a lubricant to your knives, which in turn help reduce and eliminate the build-up of heat in your cutter which would otherwise cause these fabrics to melt or fuse together.
Our Perf-Tough Kraft Paper is ideal for very high pile cutting. Perf-Tough is also enormously useful if your materials are extremely thick or heavy. To make Perf-Tough, we use a high quality virgin 44# basis-weight paper with great tensile strength, allowing our customers to utilize this sheet in the most extreme cutting situations possible. The 44# sheet allows for exceptionally high ply cuts, and is great in projects requiring heavier fabric cuts. The 44# sheet allows heavy load transition of your layers from table to cutter—and with its superior pull strength, Perf-Tough Kraft Paper will never snap on you.
Another very popular grade of our Perforated Kraft Papers is our 50# sheet. As with our 40# sheet, we use only the highest quality virgin 50# basis-weight paper, providing your cutter with the least resistance to air flow. The 50# sheet allows for very high ply cuts and is exceptionally useful with heavier fabric cuts. The 50# Kraft sheet allows for a safe and easy transition of your lays from table to cutter, and with its straight and flat properties, your fabrics will lay flat—for the purest, cleanest cut—every time.
The 40# sheet is Pritchard Paper’s most popular Perforated Kraft Paper. To make it, we use only the highest quality virgin 40# basis-weight paper, providing your cutter the least resistance to air flow. The 40# sheet allows for high ply cuts and easy transition from table to cutter. With its straight and flat properties, your fabrics will lay flat—for the purest, cleanest cut—every time.
Pritchard Paper’s Perf-Lite is ideal for low pile cutting only. We use a high quality virgin 25# basis-weight paper to compensate for its tensile strength, allowing our customers to utilize the yield advantage this sheet provides. If you’re cutting low ply, Perf-Lite Kraft Paper should be a consideration.
