What Are DTP Films?

Cosmo Direct Thermal Printable Films (DTP Films) are Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene Films (BOPP) with a coating that facilitates image formation upon contact with the thermal printer's print head. A protective layer is thoughtfully applied to shield the coated surface from mechanical abrasion, climatic variations, and chemical exposure, ensuring enduring scuff and water resistance.

Beyond its protective attributes, the film imparts a refined matte finish similar to traditional paper, producing a distinctively dark image with minimal energy consumption during the printing process.
