Professional Label Paper is a consumable for barcode printers, mainly used for label printing. Professional Label Paper for barcode printers is divided into thermal label paper and thermal transfer label paper. The printing principles of the two are different, and the required barcode printers may also be different. Because some barcode printers support thermal printing and thermal transfer printing at the same time, you can choose thermal label paper or thermal transfer label paper at this time, but some barcode printers only support one of the printing methods, you need to choose the corresponding one. Label paper type. So what is the difference between Cost Effective Thermal Paper and Widely APPliable Thermal Transfer Paper? Let me give you a little about the difference between thermal label paper and thermal transfer label paper.
Cost Effective Thermal Paper is coated with a layer of colorless heat-sensitive coating on the surface of ordinary offset labels. When printing, under the action of the heat of the print head, the heat-sensitive parts of the thermal label will turn black. The parts that are not sensitive to heat do not change color, thus forming characters or barcodes to achieve the purpose of printing. Cost Effective Thermal Paper are divided into two types with a protective layer and without a protective layer. The protective layer is on the thermal layer for the purpose of protecting the thermal layer, resisting chemical corrosion, preventing label contamination and protecting the print head. The heat-sensitive coating can be designed with different activation temperatures to meet the needs of printers with different performances
Thermal transfer paper
Widely APPliable Thermal Transfer Paper is a kind of label paper specially made for ribbon printing. The ink on the ribbon is transferred to the label paper under the action of heat and pressure from the print head of the barcode printer. Therefore, the surface of the Widely APPliable Thermal Transfer Paper is required to be smooth, non-reflective, and have good ink absorption. Generally, thermal transfer labels have a matte coating, and after reaching the print head, they can print out qualified labels under low heat and low pressure. Other types of copperplate labels and matt labels can also be used as thermal transfer labels, but the effect is not good, which affects the life of the print head and label quality.
