All About NCR Paper

NCR paper is also called carbon-free copy paper. This carbon-free paper is an alternative to carbon paper, which is used to copy handwritten or printed originals without using an electronic device. 

Before the invention of copy paper, people wrote documents more than once or used carbon paper. The carbon paper was placed between the writing paper and the spear. This method makes the user's fingertips colored. Carbonless paper makes multiple copies of handwritten and typed documents easy and clean.

The advantage of  paper is that it is a biodegradable and stain-free alternative to carbon paper. NCR first produced this product and named it No Carbon Required or NCR Paper to make it an abbreviation for National Cash Register Corporation.

Carbon-free copy paper is made from sheets of paper coated with microencapsulated paint or ink and possibly reactive clay. The back of the first sheet is covered with microencapsulated paint. The bottom sheet is covered with clay on top, which quickly reacts with dye to form a permanent imprint. The leaves are immediately covered with clay on top and paint on the bottom.

NCR paper is commonly used for invoices, receipts, and other documents that require reproduction. There are a variety of colors for photocopiers. This can include basic colors like white, yellow, pink, green, and blue. Most of the time, the white paper is the top copy and the following colors are at the bottom depending on how many duplicates are needed.
