Bisphenol A - BPA - In response to several studies raising health concerns, the European Union introduced new legislation from 02/01/2020 restricting the use of the Phenol chemical Bisphenol A (BPA) in the production of thermal till rolls. Since then it has been illegal for European manufacturers to produce Thermal Till Rolls with a concentration of BPA equal to or above 0.02% when measured by weight. Unfortunately it was not a worldwide ban and there are still several other countries where the use of BPA is not yet restricted. BPA is a low cost chemical, which when mixed with proto-dye, where the paper is heated by the printer head, it results in a reaction resulting in a dark print colour being produced, which is what you see on printed receipt paper.

Bisphenol S - BPS - As a result of the ban on BPA, most thermal rolls produced in Europe are currently manufactured using an alternative Phenol chemical called Bisphenol S (BPS). BPS is a direct replacement for BPA and is therefore also used to create the reaction required to produce the dark print which we find on most of todays receipts. However, with BPS and BPA both being Phenols, neither is suitable for standard recycling.

Whilst the use of Bisphenol S in the production of till rolls is legal, there are a growing number of health concerns surrounding regularly handling any Phenol based products and countries such as Switzerland have already gone one step further and also banned the use of BPS in thermal rolls.

Phenol Free Rolls - In response to our customers requests, Trade Till Rolls also supply a range of entirely Phenol Free thermal rolls, which can be recycled and are safe to handle on a daily basis. We recommend Phenol Free rolls to restaurants or business that handle food products regularly, though also to businesses that wish to recycle or just to minimise their exposure to phenols.

  • 55-60 GSM paper weight to ensure you get more paper on every roll
