Thermal Paper: Variety of Grades
There are several aspects which affect the grades of thermal paper. A variety of grades exist. They are:
1. Sensitivity—how much energy it takes to image the paper. The higher the sensitivity the better the image.
2. Environmental Resistance—how resistant the paper is to things such as light, heat, and moisture.
3. Archivability Years—the number of years the paper will retain its image(s).
4. Caliper—the thickness of the paper measured typically measured in mils.
POS Supply Solutions offers a wide range of OEM approved direct thermal POS products. Whether your application calls for a standard POS grade, a high durability grade with 25-year archivability, or the use of multi-colored direct thermal, POS Supply Solutions has the thermal paper roll solution for you.
