Those white exposure papers

I've seen white exposure papers, along with several other shades attached. What does it do and how would one use it? Thanks

Typically , you'd use them to set a custom white-balance. Sometimes (rarely), you can use them to set exposure, like a grey card but 2.5 or 3 stops up.
