What is office thermal paper and what properties does it detect?

Office thermal paper is a kind of paper products commonly used in printers and cash registers and other equipment. It has the characteristics of sensitivity, fast speed and no need for ribbon, so it is widely used in office, business and other fields.

Detection method
Testing the performance of office thermal paper can include the following aspects:

Color rendering: Color rendering of office thermal paper is one of its most basic performance indexes. The color rendering performance is evaluated by detecting the color rendering speed, color rendering degree, color depth and other parameters to ensure the printing effect is clear and accurate.

Heat resistance: Since office thermal paper is printed by thermal printing technology, heat resistance is also an important performance indicator. Heat resistance test can measure its performance in high temperature environment, to ensure stable print quality, will not be damaged by heat.

Moisture resistance: In practical use, office thermal paper also needs to have a certain humidity and moisture control ability to ensure printing quality and stability. A moisture resistance test can simulate its performance in a humid environment to ensure that it will still work properly in a humid environment.

Light resistance: The light resistance of office thermal paper is also an important performance index. In practical use, it may be exposed to sunlight and ultraviolet rays, so its light resistance needs to be tested to ensure print quality and long service life.

Drum wear: Since office thermal paper needs to be in direct contact with the drum of the printing equipment during the printing process, drum wear is also a performance indicator that needs to be tested. Drum wear test can evaluate the wear degree of office thermosensitive paper to the drum of printing equipment during long-term use.

Test method
Specific office thermal paper performance test methods include the following:

Color rendering test: Use a color rendering tester or a thermal printer to test the color rendering performance of office thermal paper. These devices can simulate the printing situation in real use and measure the color development speed, chrominance and color depth of office thermal paper.

Heat resistance test: Use heat treatment equipment or heat box to test the office thermal paper under high temperature environment. When testing, it is necessary to expose the office thermal paper to a high temperature environment, such as 50℃ or 60℃, and measure the indicators such as color development and clarity.

Moisture resistance test: Use a humid heat box or other humidity control equipment to test the performance of office thermal paper in a humid environment. During the test, the office thermal paper is exposed to hot and humid environment, and its color and clarity are measured.

Light resistance test: Use ultraviolet light source or fluorescent lamp to test the light resistance of office thermal paper. During the test, the office thermal paper is exposed to a light source, such as a UV light source for 48 hours, and then tested for indicators such as color rendering and clarity.

Drum wear test: Use a friction tester or other wear test equipment to test the wear between the office thermal paper and the drum of the printing equipment. During the test, the actual use process is simulated to measure the contact times and wear degree between the office thermosensitive paper and the roller.

We remind you that different test methods may require different equipment and test conditions. The test should be conducted in a professional laboratory or testing institution and follow relevant standards and regulations to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the test results. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to safety matters during the test, such as preventing fire and scald.
