Direct Thermal Products

Our Direct Thermal Products all have a heat sensitive coating on the face stock which enables these products to be imaged with a barcode printer and does not require a ribbon. Our product offering includes various face stocks from paper to synthetics. These products cover a wide range of applications and can be manufactured with a multitude of adhesives to meet our customers’ requirements.

  • Non Top Coated Paper – Our NTC Direct Thermal Paper labels utilize a paper base stock to which a thermal coating has been applied.

These labels are used in short term applications such as transportation, meat and poultry processing as well as the health care industry.
  • Top Coated Paper – Our Top Coated Paper labels are smooth, bright, white paper with a high sensitivity thermal coating. It is designed for use with low voltage print heads and is also ideal for use with high-speed thermal printers. Its special top coating provides protection to the thermal layer.
