can be used in thermal printers, cash registers, POS systems, and credit card terminals within the retail, catering, gaming, financial, government, hospitality sectors. Thermal paper is a special paper type that has a chemical coating on its surface. When the paper goes through a thermal printer, heat from the print head causes the chemical coating to activate and form an image of high definition. Unlike regular paper, this process uses heat to start a chemical reaction within the paper itself. So it doesn’t require a ribbon or toner.
