ENDURO Thermal 170 K
Tear-resistant thermal paper. Ideal for tear-resistant hang tags and loop-lock tags for textiles, industry and logistics and durable entrance tickets.
ENDURO Thermal 170 K is a tear-resistant composite material consisting of a 40 µm PP film core, a thermal paper with a topcoat on the front and a natural uncoated paper surface on the reverse side. The three-layer product structure is durable, resistant to edge tearing and water impermeable. It can be cut, punched, perforated and folded without issue. The thermal paper has a very good resistance to light, temperature, climate, water, oil / grease and plasticisers.
The thermosensitive paper surface offers good printing results and standard sensitivity in direct thermal printing. Both sides can be printed perfectly in flexo and UV offset printing.
Thanks to the multi-layer product structure ENDURO offers an affordable, eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to fully synthetic media. It is PVC-free and FSC®-certified.
