Leading the thermal paper market


Thermal papermakers worldwide recognize BASF's Ansilex® as a leader in the calcined kaolin market. From point-of-sale (POS) receipts to lottery tickets and labels, the applications for thermal paper continue to grow.


The precoat layer of the thermal paper is where kaolin is used, specifically to create a smooth printing surface and also to insulate the heat of the thermal printhead.


Meanwhile, our hydrous kaolin-based topcoats help to prevent head deposits on the thermal paper print heads.
