The difference between heat -sensitive paper and ordinary paper

Time : 2023-05-11 Hits : 5

Heat -sensitive paper and ordinary paper are two different types of paper often exposed in daily life. Although they look similar in appearance, they have obvious differences in terms of use, characteristics, and applications. This article will explore the difference between thermal and ordinary paper.


First of all, heat -sensitive paper is a special paper, which is made based on thermal technology. This paper can form high -resolution images and text through thermal conductivity, without having to use ink or carbon powder. In contrast, ordinary paper is made of natural materials such as cellulose. It is necessary to use ink or other printing materials to print content on its surface.

Secondly, thermal paper and ordinary paper are also different in use. Thermal paper needs to be used with thermal printer in order to transfer information to the surface of the paper. This printer contains a set of armal heads that can change and generate images and characters by heating dye layer. Therefore, a specific device needs to be used when using thermal paper. Ordinary paper can be printed with various types of printers, such as laser printers, inkjet printers, etc.

Third, heat -sensitive paper and ordinary paper are also different in terms of characteristics. Because the manufacturing materials and structures of thermal paper are different from ordinary paper, they have different physical and chemical properties. Thermal paper is usually thinner than ordinary paper, single in color, and is easily affected by environmental factors such as temperature and humidity, which means that they need to be careful during storage and use. In addition, because thermal paper uses thermal conductivity to generate images, its life span is shorter than ordinary paper.

Finally, there are also great differences in the application fields of thermal sensitivity paper and ordinary paper. Documents that are usually used to print short -term labels, receipts, vouchers, etc. that need to be quickly discarded. For example, in the retail industry, supermarkets often use heat -sensitive paper to print small shopping tickets and barcode labels. At the same time, because thermal paper can be used to generate images very quickly, it can also be used as the output method of electronic equipment such as medical equipment, taxi device and automatic vending machine. In contrast, ordinary paper is widely used in printing publications, promotional materials, documents and books that need to be retained for a long time.

In short, although heat -sensitive paper and ordinary paper look similar, it is very different in terms of usage, characteristics and applications. In daily life, we need to choose the proper paper type according to specific needs to obtain the best printing effect.
