ENDURO Thermal 180 High sensitivity
Tear-resistant thermal paper. Ideal for high-quality tear-resistant hang tags and loop-lock tag for textiles, industry and logistics and for durable entrance tickets with full-colour reverse side.
ENDURO Thermal 180 High sensitivity is a tear-resistant composite material consisting of a 40 µm PP film core, a thermal paper with topcoat on the front and a glossy coated 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 good resistance to light, temperature, climate, water, oil / grease and plasticisers.
The thermosensitive paper surface offers good printing results and increased sensitivity in direct thermal printing. The gloss-coated reverse side offers high print contrast and colour brilliance. 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.
