What do you mean by the term ‘coated paper’?

A wide variety of papers have undergone coating to increase their degrees of gloss, ink holdout, brightness, and smoothness. Enamel papers are high-gloss papers with high bulk and opacity; they are ideal for offset printing. The basic size of enamel papers is 25 x 38. It comes in basis weights of 60,70,80 and 100-pound.

Lightweight coated papers are used primarily for magazines, catalogs, and newspaper inserts. Their size is also 25 x 38 and they come in basis weights of 30 and 40-pound.
