No Carbon Paper, carbonless.
With carbonless paper, the copy is produced by a chemical reaction between two different coatings, which are generally applied to the front and back of a base paper. This colour reaction is caused by pressure (typewriter, dot-matrix printer, or writing instrument).
The front sides of the sheets are coated with an invisible clay designed to react with a specific dye to form a permanent mark.
The back sides of the sheets are coated with the micro-encapsulated dye necessary to make the carbonless paper and carbonless form system work, and when the top copy is written or printed on (with special dot-matrix printers), the pressure enables the coating on the back of the sheet to react with the coating on the front of the subsequent sheet.
The micro capsules break and spill their tiny allotments of dye onto the clay. And because the capsules are tiny, the print is very accurate and transferable down 2, 3, 4, or even 5 sheets, enabling multi layer forms.
