BPA-Free 80mm x 80mm Thermal Paper Roll for POS Billing
In most retail outlets the billing is generated on 80mm x 80mm Thermal Paper Roll printers that have changed the way retail businesses operate. These thermal printing machines have increased efficiency at the retail POS manifold but at the same time, it has also increased the risk of BPA (Bisphenol A) exposure among end users like cash counter clerks and customers. Ongoing research has indicated that BPA contamination of food can lead to serious conditions including prostate and breast cancer in addition to other conditions.
Growing Children are prone to contamination by BPA coated receipts
BPA comprises of a chemical compound known as xenoestrogen that has hormonal similarities with estrogen, which is hazardous to humans especially growing children. As the cash economy gradually gets replaced by the organized sector, the use of receipts printed on thermal printer rolls of 80mm in India is increasing. There are many things that children buy at the retail stores that issue thermal paper receipts coated with BPA. The risk of BPA contamination increases with smaller children buying packed foodstuff like wafers, candies, ice-cream etc.
The increasing frequency of exposure to BPA coated receipts
After accepting the thermal paper receipt at the cash counter, they are likely to unwrap and start eating the foodstuff immediately. In this way, the BPA contaminated food goes right into their stomach immediately after the exposure. The children aren’t going to be happy with just one purchase in a month or even a fortnight; they might want to buy this or other packed food every day or every alternate day. At that rate, the level of BPA contamination will reach scary proportions because growing children are the easiest victims of exposure to thermal printer rolls of 80mm in India.
The market needs to be informed of the dangers of BPA
At present, there isn’t much information going around in the market about the dangers of BPA contamination via 80mm x 80mm thermal paper roll as well as in other size variations. The market needs to be aware of the dangers of higher levels of estrogen in humans. Prolonged exposure to BPA can cause a number of other health complications in addition to breast and prostate cancer. The best option is obviously to stop using BPA for the thermal coating of POS billing paper. Rudkav International is a leading producer of BPA-free thermal paper for POS billing.
