How It Works

Thermal paper rolls are used in diverse range of solutions and products for cash registers, POS systems and hand held devices used within the gaming, financial, hospitality, medical, government and retail sectors. Thermal paper is a special paper type that is manufactured with specialty coating that aids in inkless printing. On application of heat to the coating, a clear image is formed on the paper with no requirement for ribbons or inks.

Thermal paper as the name suggests is a paper that is sensitive to heat. It is coated with chemicals that give it special properties to react to heat and enable image formation on paper through heat sensitivity. The paper formation includes chemicals and special dyes so that when thermal paper is exposed to heat through a thermal printer the reaction produces an image on the paper which is dark, strong and durable. It provides high-definition images that stay intact for a long time and therefore are reliable and more useful for important documents.
