Market Definition

Thermal paper, sometimes also known as audit roll, is a special fine paper coated with a material formulated to change color when exposed to the heat. It is mainly used in thermal printers, mostly in lightweight or inexpensive cash registers, machines, and credit card terminals. Generally, the coating will change into black when it is heated, in presence of flame but coatings that turn blue or red are sometimes used. Although an open heat source, such as a flame, can fade the paper, a fingernail swiped quickly across the paper will often produce enough heat from friction to create a mark.
