ThermoScript thermal papers are designed to answer the demand for phenol-free thermal paper.

Mitsubishi HiTec Paper offers a large range of coated specialty papers for a variety of applications. At Labelexpo Americas, the company is displaying this wide range of dedicated products for label and packaging applications.

ThermoScript thermal papers are designed to answer the demand for phenol-free thermal paper, which is rising significantly, the company says. Mitsubishi has been using phenol-free developers for thermal papers for many years, with and without topcoats, for labels, tickets, receipts or lottery tickets, including integrated security features. Linerless is a fast-growing label segment as well. The ThermoScript LL 77 series of thermal papers, launched at Labelexpo Europe 2017 in Brussels, offer a cost-effective linerless solution, and they are also phenol-free.
