Most people in cities and suburbs spend their weekend with their families at movie shows and malls. They move around from shop to shop looking for things to buy and then they look around for food and beverage courts where they eat and drink. All this requires payment to be made and all of the transactions require sellers of goods and services to issue cash receipts.
Movie tickets printed on thermal paper printers
Unlike in the earlier decades, the cash receipts are no longer hand-written as retail outlets have to keep pace with increasing customer footfalls and transactions, which requires speed and efficiency. At the movie theater, tickets are printed from thermal paper movie ticket rolls with BPA (Bisphenol A) coating which can cause serious health problems to humans.
How harmful is BPA exposure for humans?
BPA is a chemical compound that is used to coat thermal paper on which the printing is done through heat transfer; no printing ink or dye is used to print on thermal paper. However, BPA has been found to have some serious hazards for human health and is said to cause breast and prostate cancer in individuals exposed to this compound.
Parking tickets printed from thermal paper printers
People going out to spend their weekend in multiplexes and malls have to park their cars in safe parking lots where they are given parking ticket from paper rolls that are printed on thermal paper printers. While this system of issuing parking tickets from thermal printers is fast and efficient, it also poses a health risk for all those who are exposed to it, e.g. the parking lot attendant and the car owners.
Weekend full of exposure to BPA contamination
Just imagine the amount of BPA contamination that the average individual is exposed to during a weekend when he goes out to have a good time with his family. From movie ticket rolls to parking ticket paper rolls and from restaurant bills to fast food counter bills, every receipt is printed on BPA coated thermal paper. The most serious contamination happens at the self-service fast food counters where bills are paid before the food is delivered resulting in people eating their food after handling the BPA coated receipts.
BPA-free thermal paper is the ideal replacement for such receipts and it is supplied by Rudkav International, a renowned manufacturer based in Noida, UP.
