Abstract

There is presently interest in new printing methods, which utilize simple non-toxic printing media which can be applied rapidly, and without the use of treated paper, which have the following disadvantages: (1) the thermochromic dyes used are of unknown toxicity, (2) the paper has to be specially produced, and (3) the general appearance of the treated paper is inferior to ordinary bond.
