The innovative Ökobon® thermal paper consists of a first-class basic paper from sustainable forestry. Ökobon® was specially developed for this forward-looking type of thermal technology. The coating reacts to the heat of the thermal printhead. In contrast to existing thermal papses, it contains fine bubbles, which collapse by selective heat transfer of the thermal printer. Through this purely physical reaction, the underlying black layer is made visible, thus creating the typeface on the receipt. Therefore it is produced without chemicals known as color former or developer.
Because of its mode of action, Ökobon® has additional outstanding features:
- Very high image stability, above standards for any non-top-coat-thermal paper
- More than 100 years archivability
- Oil- and water resistant-sunlight resistant: storage possible without fading
- Plastcizer resistant: storage possible in plasic covers
- Safe against falsification: no way to remove the printed image
- Adaptable in existing printers: a real drop-in solution
