NCR paper is extremely useful for keeping copies and noting down important information, especially if you work in a busy, rushed environment such as a café or restaurant. One of the benefits of NCR is that it doesn’t require the insertion of a carbon sheet between pages in order to make a duplicate.
If you use non-carbon sheets, all you need to do is write information down and the rest will take care of itself. Tasks will become simple and more cost effective for your business – increasing your efficiency and reducing pressure for your employees.
NCR paper could be the answer to all your dinner rush problems, but how exactly is it made?
Sheets of paper are coated with micro-encapsulated dye, ink or a reactive clay. The back of the first sheet is then coated with micro-encapsulated dye, usually referred to as a coated back or CB sheet. The lowermost sheet is then coated on the top surface using a quickly reactive clay as this reacts with the dye to form a permanent mark. This is often known as coated front CF.
Any immediate sheets are coasted with clay on top and dye on the bottom – these are called coated front and back or CFB sheets. When the sheets are written on with pressure, it causes the micro-capsules to break and release the dye. Due to the micro-capsules being so tiny, the results they provide on the page are very clear and accurate.
Carbonless copy paper was also available in a self-contained version that had both the ink and the clay on the same side of the paper.
