That may be necessary. From what I have learned, its harder to produce single weight than it is double weight. That sounds counter-intuitive, but its not. The double weight paper stands up to the processing much better than single weight. The coating machines can go faster too. From what I found out about the process, its just not viable for a US, UK, or Japanese company to make single weight unless they are willing to do it at a loss. Fat chance. I'm really surprised that Slavich is doing it, but, the Russian economy is hungry for business. If they can make it, and make a profit, power to them.
