Method used

[0048] The substrate prepared according to the method of the present invention comprises a flexible support material. A homogeneous foam-forming layer is arranged on one side of the carrier material. In a preferred embodiment, the substrate is formed from paper or a nonwoven material based on a fibrous material comprising cellulose. By using gas (especially air) as a blowing agent, the overall cost of the preparation method is reduced. There is no need to add expensive foam fillers to the coating.

The invention relates to a process for producing a foamed coating on a substrate in the form of a web, where the substrate is entirely or to some extent coated with a coating composition, the applied layer is dried at a temperature above 70°C, and the coating composition is applied in the form of foam, where an aqueous coating composition is used, comprising polymers selected from poly(meth)acrylates, maleate polymers or ethylene-vinyl acetate polymers, and the coating composition is foamed by an inert gas that has been introduced.

Example Embodiment

[0053] Example
[0054] Prepare a mixture of the following substances:
[0056] The pigment is ground and homogenized in the dispersed phase. Adjust the pH to about 7.
[0057] The viscosity is about 3500mPas, 25°C (EN ISO2555, Brookfield viscometer).
[0058] The density is about 1.45g/cm 3.
[0059] The obtained mixture is processed in a foam generator using air as gas to obtain a foam; the ratio of coating agent to air = 55:45.
[0060] A spatula was used to obtain a 2 mm thick layer from the foam on a piece of paper (10 x 10 cm).
[0061] The resulting layer was dried in a circulating air oven at 130°C for 30 seconds.
[0062] A paper substrate with a dried layer is obtained; the layer thickness is about 1.8 mm. The surface is non-sticky and soft, and can be embossed.
