The drafting film is available gridded, with 1, 5 and 10mm grid area printed in blue -- which if copied or scanned correctly can be lost leaving only the drawing.
The double matte translucent coating exhibits exceptional ant-static properties that lays the foundation for lasting drafts in various medias including: lead, charcoal, graphite, plastic lead, coloured pencil, pen and ink. These quality drafting sheets are dimensionally stable and at 1:20 scale this sheet covers a full 5 m2 -- leaving space to overlap when covering larger areas.
