Zink : Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary



A printing technology that uses no inks or toners. It uses a photopaper with embeded dyes. By directing heat to its three layers, the colours can be revealed. Polaroid has produced a new camera that squirts out prints, just like the SX-70 of old. The paper costs about 30¢ for a 2 × 3” sheet.

I was concerned because the colours are activated by heat. What happens if the complete images are stored in a warm place? Is there anything that prevents further colour appearing? I wrote Zink, and they replied:

The temperatures that activate the different colors are much higher than ambient temperatures. There is no mechanism or process that stops color changing, however, there is no need to implement this as there is no risk. That being said, it is still not suggested to store images in excessive heat. Please note that direct sunlight over time will cause the colors to fade, just like any other pictures printed with ink.
