· Single Layer
· Double Layer
· Corrugated Ripple
1) Single Layer Paper Cups:
Single-layer paper cups are coated internally with a PLA coating.
This PLA coating provides an extra layer of protection for the paper cups. The coating helps to insulate the paper from getting wet and glue the sides of the cup.
2) Double Layer Paper Cups:
Double layer paper cups are made of two layers of paper, with air spaces between them, decreasing heat conductivity from the beverage.
There is no burning of hands when handling the cups.
Double layer paper cups are a convenient way to keep a cold drink cool and a hot drink hot for a more extended period.
3) Corrugated Ripple Paper Cups:
Corrugated Ripple Paper Cups have a three-layer structure.
The uppermost layer is decorated. The second layer is an embossed layer, and the third layer is a finished layer.
As compared to the other types of paper cups, cups made of corrugated paper have the least thermal conductivity.
Material Used in Manufacturing Paper Cups:
Paper cups are manufactured from wood fibers.
The fibers are milled, creating wood chips.
These wood chips are then pulped and bleached in a de-inking process using sodium hydroxide, chlorine, and other chemicals, which are then processed into paper cups.

Paper cups have the following benefits:
· Environmentally friendly and biodegradable
· Low cost
