Following our last post, some of you asked about the availability of higher grade thermal paper. A variety of grades exist. There are four main aspects of thermal paper that affect its grade.
1. Sensitivity—how much energy it takes to image the paper. The higher the sensitivity the better the image.
2. Environmental Resistance—how resistant the paper is to things such as light, heat, and moisture.
3. Archivability Years—the number of years the paper will retain its image(s).
4. Caliper—the thickness of the paper measured typically measured in mils.
