Action Paper:

Sometimes known as self contained paper, this paper type has primarily been supplied for rolls using two or three ply’s of paper but more recently has been widely adapted to be used as a single ply impact rolls for Chip and Pin (credit card) systems.

The paper type is coated with a special formulation of micro capsules that creates an image when pressure is applied by the printer mechanism effectively bursting the capsules.

No ribbon is required in the printer to achieve an image on any of the copies including the top copy

The rolls sometimes look ‘dirty or marked’ on the outside which is caused by excess pressure on the capsules.

Unlike some products, self contained rolls from Track & Trace Services have minimal marking and as such provide a clearer image.
