We ensure that our thermal ribbons are matched to both the performance requirements of the label material to be printed and the thermal transfer printer on which they will be used. 100% compatibility is critical to the successful implementation of barcode labelling systems.
The most economical choice for general purpose tag and labelling applications including shipping, warehousing, retail, textile, and apparel. Choose a wax ribbon when printing on uncoated and coated paper tag and label stocks, and low end filmic labels. It is ideal for applications where the label is for identification purposes only and will be thrown away as part of the packaging.
The best choice when a higher level of scratch, smear or mild chemical resistance is needed in labelling applications. Premium wax/ resin ribbons print well on coated paper tag and label stocks, low end films, and even some polyester labels. Wax-Resin ribbons print on a broad range of label stocks and have excellent image durability.
Best for harsh environments labels requiring resistance to abrasion, heat or chemicals. Applications include chemical drum labelling, electronics labelling, pharmaceutical labelling, medical device labelling, automotive labelling and industrial work-in-process labelling. Resin ribbons are compatible with high end synthetic films such as polyester and polyamide (Kapton).
