    paper - inkjet laser copier

    I learned 30 years ago that only 'copier paper' is suitable for a copier.
    Laser would be for printers and inkjet for inkjet.
    If inkjet paper would be used in a copier, that would melt in the fusing unit because of the coating on that paper.
    In that time some customers bought laser quality for use in copier and told me that won't be a problem...
    So, I investigate and find out that the fusing unit would last longer with 'copier' or 'copy' on the cover.
    Today I looked quick on the internet and can't find a site that says to use 'copy' on a MFP.
    They all say to use the 'laser' quality.
    But still most papercovers here make a difference between 'laser' and 'copy'
    What do you know about this?

    Inkjet paper won't melt.
    Inkjet is more porous so the ink bleeds into it.
    The reason they say not to use in laser copiers is it sucks up the oil in the fuser therefore drying it out then it could wrap n jam.

    That depends on the type of inkjet paper. The coating on some high gloss inkjet paper will. I had a high school find that out the hard way.

    The ones sold by Burger King here in California taste more like saw dust.

    I have NEVER had inkjet paper 'melt' in the fuser unit... transparencies yes.

    it seems to me if the paper was coated in 'plastic' the ink wouldn't absorb into thus smearing the ink.

    At the high school it didn't melt. It had portions peal off and stick to the fusing roller. Since the glossy paper was only a cover sheet, it was then offset onto subsequent pages.
