What is thermal paper?
The thermal printing paper is highly recognizable for its special finesse and quality. These cash register paper roll consist of a chemically treated paper, which can change its color when exposed to heat. So, unlike the conventional ink-jet printers, the printing is done by heating particular portions of the paper and making a permanent mark there. The advantage of heat-based printing is that it is permanent and will not fade over time. Also, the quality of the printing paper is high, which will not get damaged with heat, cold or moisture conditions.
Now more and more thermal paper rolls are consumed in Uganda market as with the fast growing economy.
