What the #1W?!

Steve asks,

I have a customer asking me to interpret and explain this call out “ 200E #1W”.

The 200E part is easy. It’s the #1W is a bit more ambiguous…I don’t believe it is industry standard expression. Could it be a designation for coated SBS?

Oh yes. A long history here.

# 1 could be Kemi, Coated SBS, or Coated label stock

#2 does not exist anymore or a lightly coated white top or uncoated SBS

#3 is what we refer to today as uncoated white top.
