It is the same netBIT 300g marked EXPERTIZ as last year.
The paper on sale with the EVO label on their site (for much more) is specified microporous, but there is no mention of the EXPERTIZ label.

It behaves and feels as standard quality HP and Canon papers, it is not a cheap cast coated as LabelHeaven etc.

The back does not absorb water as the latter, indicating a paper with a polyester layer on both sides, as easily can be seen after soaking a strip in water.
This, and the good absorption of dye and pigment inks, points to a microporous top layer.

Is it a RC paper or cast coated as the Sihl 280 quick dry? Makes a big difference for scratch resistance and pizza wheels with some printers.
Is there manufacturer given on thepackage?

Don't know this one.

I have some old SIHL leftovers from Aldi with various weights, but all are poly coated (and the top layer has much less gloss difference with pigment inks than the actual products, I use it in my 9500 without gloss optimiser).
