Non-BPA Thermal Paper Rolls Play a Major Part in the Hotel Industry’s Safety Standards
The use of non-BPA (Bisphenol A) thermal paper has effectively changed the hotel industry in many ways, impacting not only the way bills are settled at the front office cash counter but also how checks and receipts of the guests are printed. Thermal paper rolls without BPA on their thermal coating is a growing necessity that the hotel industry should be aware of. That’s because BPA is composed of hazardous chemical compounds that can seriously impact human health.
The coffee shop BPA exposure
Most good hotels have their own coffee shops which are actually restaurants offering a wide range of snacks and full course meals. The use of hotel billing rolls with a thermal coating that includes BPA is something that hotels need to avoid. At the coffee shop, people are more prone to instant BPA contamination in their food. For instance, after they pay up their bill at the self-service counter and pick up their food, the next thing they are likely to do is bite into the food after handling the BPA coated POS receipt.
BPA coated receipts with room service
Many hotels want to ensure that nothing goes amiss in their billing process and hence, they include POS bills printed on thermal paper rolls with room service for breakfast, lunch, dinner or any other order for food and drinks. If the bills happen to be printed with BPA coated thermal paper, which is how it is normally printed, the customer handles the bill and then goes on to eat the food that has been served. Most if not all customers know very little about the hazards of BPA on POS bills printed on thermal paper.
POS bills at the hotel bar
The bar is a very important part of a hotel and is often referred to as the watering hole where people sit for long hours, drinking and eating different kinds of snack foods. The bar is an integral part of the hotel but within the hotel’s own accounting system it is like a separate profit center. The hotel billing rolls allow the bar to raise bills on the food and drinks consumed by the customer and every time they do it with BPA coated POS thermal paper, they expose the customer to serious health hazards.
Rudkav International is one of the few manufacturers of thermal paper for hotel billing rolls in India, which doesn’t coat the thermal paper it produces, with BPA.
