What type of paper rolls do I need?PremiumPaperRolls.com.au can supply your company with a variety of different paper rolls. The main types are: Thermal paper rolls, lint-free bond paper rolls and wet strength paper rolls.
Thermal paper rolls
Thermal paper rolls are probably the most commonly used paper rolls in Australia. Thermal paper rolls use heat sensitive film and are similar to the older fax papers and they do not require ink.
The paper reacts to heat applied by a thermal receipt printer to create text and images on the paper. The most common sizes are 80mm x 80mm and 57mm x 57mm.
Lint-Free Bond Paper Rolls
Bond paper rolls are usually used for kitchen docket printing with a dot matrix printer or the most basic cash registers and these rolls require an ink ribbon.
The benefits of bond rolls is that they are not sensitive to oil or heat and therefore are ideal for use in the kitchen. The most common sizes are 76mm x 76mm and 57mm x 57mm.
Wet-Strength Bond Paper Rolls
Wet-Strength Bond Paper Rolls are mostly used by dry cleaners however they can be used in any applications that require the paper to be exposed to water or other liquids.
The paper can be soaked in water and retain its composition. The most common size is 76mm x 76mm.
BPA Free Paper Rolls
Most thermal paper rolls sold in Australia are coated with Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical considered to be an endocrine disruptor. BPA can transfer readily to skin in small amounts. Investigations are currently being conducted around the world regarding this issue. We can supply your business with paper rolls that are guaranteed BPA free and supplied in recycled cardboard boxes.
According to a study published in Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemsitry: When taking hold of a receipt consisting of thermal printing paper for 5 s, roughly 1 µg BPA (0.2–6 µg) was transferred to the forefinger and the middle finger if the skin was rather dry and about ten times more if these fingers were wet or very greasy. This amount transferred to dry skin was neither significantly increased when taking hold of the paper at up to 10 sites, nor reduced when BPA-free paper was contacted afterwards. After 60–90 min, BPA applied to the skin as a solution in ethanol was only partially or no longer at all extractable with ethanol, whereas BPA transferred to the skin by holding thermal printer paper remained largely extractable after 2 h. This suggests that penetration of the skin depends on the conditions. Extractability experiments did not enable us to conclude whether BPA passes through the skin, but indicated that it can enter the skin to such a depth that it can no longer be washed off. If this BPA ends up in the human metabolism, exposure of a person repeatedly touching thermal printer paper for 10 h/day, such as at a cash register, could reach 71 µg/day, which is 42 times less than the present tolerable daily intake (TDI). However, if more than just the finger pads contact the BPA-containing paper or a hand cream enhances permeability of the skin, this margin might be smaller.
