Wax ribbons belong to the most economic quality group and have been designed especially for applications using low printing energy. They have been developed mainly for paper labels where excellent results are achieved even on rough surfaces.
Wax Resin Type
The formula of premium ribbons is based on wax and resin. They are applied at medium printing energy. Premium ribbons guarantee accurate and detailed prints on smooth surfaces and are suitable for plastic labels. Compared with wax ribbons the abrasion and scratch resistance is much higher.
Resin ribbons are applied at high printing energy. They are extremely abrasion resistant, highly scratch resistant and also resistant against gasoline, alcohol and some solvents. On smooth plastic surface, the printing results are accurate with high printing speed.
Near Edge Premium Ribbons
Near Edge thermal transfer printers are designed to print up to 1000mm/sec. Near edge premium ribbons are designed to give perfect printing results at this high speed and they are printable on smooth paper stock as well as on many plastic labels and films.
