Most commercial studios just use a white board or large sheet of white paper. There's no special formula per se to get the BG white, but all lies in the control of light. Also, a l.ot can be done of corrected quite quickly in post these days. ;)

if you want pro results,

buy laminating sheets which use for making furnitures and interior

or get acrylic sheets which use for sign board making.

of course, the thicker the material chosen, the more light one would need to achieve the desired translucency.

the material can also be used for better diffusion for harsh light source... the thicker it is, the softer the light source... *of course, dun expect use a thick piece of glass to get soft lighting...*

materials aside, perhaps, try overexposing by 1-2 stops may give the desired 'translucency'.
