HOW exactly do carbonless forms work?
Carbonless copy paper has micro-encapsulated ink on the backside of the top sheet. The front side of the bottom sheet is coated with clay. One applies pressure when writing on or typing mechanically on the top sheet. This pressure allows the ink to react with the clay, which copies the markings on the top sheet onto the bottom one.
