Label must be printed with carbon tape (long storage time). If you can tell, use your nails to slide quickly on the tissue layer. If it turns black, it's thermal paper.
Thermosensitive adhesive is a colorless thermosensitive coating on the surface of ordinary offset paper. The thermal sensitive coating is mainly composed of coupling agent, color developing agent and sensitizer. Coupler for thermal paper, usually colorless or light stable powder, will develop color under certain conditions (thermal energy). Let's call this label a thermal paper label.
