Freezer paper

Freezer paper can be used to wrap wet books as they are packed into boxes. One surface of the paper is stick-resistant due to a polyurethane coating, and wrapping should be done in such a manner that this glossy surface is the one that is in contact with the books.

Freezer paper is also an excellent adhesive mask for use with PVA/mixture, however only the treated side is resistant to adhesion.
