In paper manufacturing, calendering is the process of smoothing the surface of the paper by pressing it between cylinders or rollers — the calenders — at the end of the papermaking process. An additional set of calenders or supercalenders used after the initial papermaking process produce an even smoother, thinner paper called supercalendered paper.
Calendered groundwood paper made using alternating chrome and fiber rollers that makes a very smooth, thin sheet of paper is known as supercalendered paper.
