ZINK hAppy Smart App Printers™ work with the specially designed ZINK zRolls™. zRolls are the revolutionary ZINK Paper® in an adhesive-backed roll format. zRolls come in five different color-coded sizes: 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", and 2". zRolls feature a special, acid-free adhesive that allows you to quickly and easily remove and reapply your design if placed incorrectly. Your design will become permanently secure over time.
ZINK® stands for Zero Ink® - a technology that produces photo-quality, full-color print without using ink cartridges, ribbons, or toner. The technology encompasses both the ZINK Paper® within each zRoll™ and the intelligence embedded in every ZINK Smart APP Printer™ The fundamental concept is simple, yet extraordinary: Heat from the hAppy or hAppy+ activates the unique color-forming crystals embedded in the layers of ZINK Paper. Color then emerges to form a full-color print.
ZINK Paper® -- Innovations in Physics
The cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals that enable the magic of ZINK, were invented by ZINK Imaging scientists through a rigorous discovery process. Each molecule is finely tuned, colorless and invisible to the naked eye. When activated at very high temperatures for fractions of a second, the crystals move from colorless to colored to create beautiful images. When cooled, the crystals new color state is permanently retained.
ZINK® Dye Crystals -- Magic Molecules
With each zRoll is more than 19 of ZINK Paper®, an advanced composite material composed of multiple layers of color-forming chemistry. The multiple layers are coated as a think "stack" onto a base layer. A polymer coating protects the layers from moisture, UV exposure, and fading. Amazingly, all the layers combined is less than the thickness of a human hair. ZINK Paper looks like regular white photo paper until heat activates the different color layers independently to create full-color.
