Polytag consist of white, uncoated, two-side matte HDPE (high density polyethylene) film with the basic weight of 130 g/m². It is distinguished by excellent tear and tensile strength, great resistance to chemicals, grease, water, and good resistance to UV radiation (up to 1.5 years outdoors). It remains flexible at low temperatures (up to -40°C). It has model processing properties, e.g. cutting, guillotine shearing, perforating, and good printability using all traditional printing methods. The material is approved by FDA for direct contact with food as well. The application examples include skipasses, multi-use tickets for events and luggage tags.
Don’t forget the ribbon
The specificity of printing with resin ribbons
Thermal transfer resin ribbons were made for the most demanding applications where resistance to high or low temperatures, mechanical strength, resistance to solvents or detergents are a must. Thanks to those properties, they ensure the highest print quality when compared to other thermal transfer ribbons, which is preserved usually up to 180°C, but even up to 300°C as well. It is similar for the print quality which reaches the highest level thanks to the ribbon capability to provide excellent print sharpness. Resin dyes require more energy from the print head to transfer to the label which is why the printing speed may be max. 250 mm/s, therefore lower than using wax-resin ribbons. Resin ribbons are compatible both with flat head and edge head printers. The major differences among resin ribbons refer to their features as regards resistance to: abrasion, scratching, temperature, solvents, and certain detergents. We have a wide range of resin ribbons for specific applications.
