Avoid storing the thermal paper in combination with the following conditions:
Papers that contain organic solvents. This includes papers with tributyl and/or dibutyl
phosphates, for example recycled paper.
Carbon paper and carbonless copy paper.
Products containing polyvinyl chlorides, or other vinyl chlorides for example (but not
exclusively) document holders, envelopes, letter files, divider sheets.
Detergents and solvents, such as alcohol, ketone, ester, and others, including cleaning and
Products containing solvent-based adhesives such as (but not exclusively) laminating film,
transparent film, or labels sensitive to pressure.
To ensure long lasting legibility and durability of thermal printouts, store your documents separately in
an air-conditioned place and use:
only plasticizer-free envelopes or divider sheets for protection.
laminating films and systems with water-based adhesives.
Using such protective envelopes cannot prevent the fading effect caused by other, external agents.
