Can anyone tell me about a pastel paper called 'Pounce' ?

Clairefontaine is advertising a new paper / card called ' Pastelmat ' in 8 colours which they say combines all the advantages of ' Velour ' & ' Pounce '.

I have used Velour before so I know all about that,but can't find anyone who has heard of ' Pounce '.

Any info much appreciated,

Cheers, Fingy.

From what I know, pounce paper is a transparent paper for tracing, however, it might not be what it is referring to ..

EDIT: just looked up pounce, it is a fine powder ... I am assuming that is what they are referring to as it seems most logical :D guess pastelmat is like velour with a sanded surface.
