What is Non-Collated Carbonless?
When you need carbonless that isn't "pre-collated" (where the sheets are already sequenced in something like white, canary, pink, for example), you can buy carbonless paper that is one single color and coating. Non-collated carbonless, or single sheet carbonless, is available in 7 colors. Each color can usually come in 1 of 3 different coatings: CB (coated back), CFB (coated front & back), and CF (coated front). The coating refers to the microcapsules that are applied to the carbonless sheet during manufacturing. The microcapsules burst when a pen or pencil applies pressure to the paper surface. The bursting creates the image transfer to subsequent sheets.
How do Single Sheets work?
You will need the right coating combination for a successful carbonless form. The top form needs to be CB (coated back) and the bottom form needs to be CF (coated front). In between CB and CF can be up to 4 CFB sheets (coated front and back). As long as you collate (combine) the sheets in CB, CF, or CB, CFB, CF sequence, an image will transfer properly with pressure. When the coated sides meet they are ready to transfer an image for your business form or legal form, etc. When the uncoated sides meet, the image transfer will stop working.
Types and Uses
Most carbonless paper comes precollated in 2 part, 3 part, 4 part, 5 part or 6 part. The color combination is fixed and cannot be changed without undoing the collation by hand or machine. This is slow and painful. It's better to start with single sheets that are separated already, print on them, then collate when the printing is finished. When you start with single sheets it is possible to arrange the colors in a large variety of combinations. The end user can be delighted to have the color sequence just the way they want. The 7 available colors are:
