Thermal Transfer Ribbons

Thermal transfer printing requires the use of a carbon based ribbon which is chemically transferred onto a label’s substrate when heat is applied, hence the name “thermal transfer.”

Thermal transfer ribbons can be many different formulas and colors, so the user is not limited to black print. The print quality is crisp and durable which makes thermal transfer printing an excellent choice for printing high density bar-codes and labels that require longevity. Another benefit is that thermal transfer printers can print on paper, film, and even foil substrates.

WAX RIBBONS

WORKS BEST FOR MOST APPLICATIONS
Ideal for Use:

  • With paper materials
  • Where fast print speeds are required (Up to 12 ips)
  • In environments with little to no exposure to chemicals and/or abrasion

WAX/RESIN RIBBONS

PROVIDES GOOD ABRASION AND CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
Ideal for Use:

  • With top-coated paper and matte synthetic materials
  • In environments with moderate to harsh exposure to chemicals and/or abrasion

RESIN RIBBONS

UNMATCHED PRINT QUALITY AND DURABILITY
Ideal for Use:

  • With all synthetic materials and some topcoated labels and tags
  • In environments with harsh to extreme exposure to chemicals
  • When applications require strong resistance against ultra high temperatures and harsh outdoor environments
