This compound has traditionally been used as a color developer in thermal paper - commonly used in the retail sector for receipt paper and weighing scale labels - but EU regulation 2016/2236 has restricted its use.

To help stay a step ahead of the regulations, UPM Raflatac already have a full range of uncoated and top-coated BPA-free thermal papers available to fulfill most end-use requirements.

The company also offer bisphenol-free and total phenol-free products for those with more specific end-user demands.
