In the past ten years, many Tanzania’s local thermal paper suppliers have been importing paper rolls from nearby countries (especially South Africa). But with the time going, more and more suppliers realized that it was not a bad choice to buy the rolls from the country in the far east – China.

Effective Uses of Thermal Paper Rolls

Thermal paper is a particular type of paper which is coated with certain chemical substances that can change color when exposed to heat. Using thermal paper rolls in POS printers, ATM machines, or credit card terminals has many benefits. The quality of printing onto thermal paper is clearer than on normal paper and less likely to be faded. Also, the thermal paper rolls are very easy to handle. Unlike conventional paper rolls, thermal paper can be easily loaded and aligned and is also very flexible to manipulate.

As with the growth of Tanzania’s economy, more and more people will go to the grocery to buy something, and more people will go to the bank, thus the paper rolls are consumed much more than before, which leads to a very big thermal paper market.
