Direct thermal printing is a heat-activated means of releasing a printed image embedded in a specially manufactured paper. With this technology, information is imaged directly onto the face stock, so there are never any data-filled ribbons to dispose of.
Direct thermal label stocks are the optimal choice for a wide array of industry applications. From retail information labels; to in-store labeling applications; to distribution labels, baggage tags and prescription labels, these products continuously provide exceptional print quality.
UPM Raflatac’s direct thermal products feature highly resistant, non-top-coated paper face stocks paired with a variety of adhesives and either a 1.7 mil White Glassine or 40# White Kraft liner for superior converting capabilities.
