Definition german
<p>Ein Papier, das durch spezielle Behandlung fast den Charakter von Pergament annimmt. Damit hergestellte, lichtdicht gelagerte Einb&auml;nde sind oft nur schwer von Pergament zu unterscheiden. Unter Lichteinfluss ist Pergamin jedoch nicht alterungsbest&auml;ndig, es vergilbt (bis zu kr&auml;ftigem Braun) und wird br&uuml;chig.</p>
