Action paper sometimes known as self contained paper, this paper type has primarily been supplied for rolls using two or three ply’s of paper but more recently has been widely adapted to be used as a single ply impact rolls for Chip and Pin (credit card) systems.
This paper type is coated with a special formulation of micro capsules that create an image when pressure is applied by the printer mechanism effectively bursting the capsules. With this paper no ribbon is required in the printer to achieve an image on any of the copies.
The rolls can often look ‘dirty or marked’ on the outside which is caused by excess pressure on the capsules. Unlike some products, self contained rolls from Paper Loop Consumables have minimal marking and as such provide a clearer image.
