Action Paper Info

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.

Single & Multi Ply Papers Info

Single ply papers – There are many grades of paper that can be described under this heading, however generally ‘A Grade’ and recycled ‘TMP’ are generally the more recognised qualities used within paper roll manufacturers.

The main difference with these two grades is that ‘A Grade’ is a brighter and whiter paper where as recycled grades are more off white.  To achieve an image on this roll a ribbon would be required in the printer mechanism.

Multi Ply Papers, are coated with a special formulation of micro capsules that are applied to either the front or back of the paper on in the case of 3 ply rolls the second copy is coated both sides.

To achieve an image on the top copy there must be a ribbon in the printer mechanism.

Thermal Roll Info

Thermal paper is a heat sensitive paper (this means no ribbon required) which has many different properties to it, the more popular ones are usually of a standard weight and coating, although they can have a top coat or sealer, dependant on system and market sector type.

Our thermal papers meet with or exceed the OEM specifications of today’s ever evolving market sectors, OEM’s include Epson, Star, Citizen, Seiko, Hypercom, Verifone, Zebra, Casio, Sharp plus many more.

To recognise thermal paper simply run your finger nail across the surface and the heat generated by the friction will form a black image, this can sometimes be found on the underside which would confirm that particular roll is reverse wound.

Please note when comparing roll sizes other suppliers may use different thickness of paper, which can result in differing lengths.  We are happy to test your current roll for comparison.

Our test will confirm roll width, roll diameter, core (this includes both I/D & O/D), paper coating, grammage and microns. We offer all paper specification sheets on request.
