The specificity of printing with wax-resin ribbons
From among all types of thermal transfer ribbons, the wax resin ones have the highest versatility as they meet a wide range of needs relating to label printing in logistics, production, or distribution. They are perfect for use in environments with medium or high risk of abrasion or contact with chemicals. High density of the wax-resin ink ensures very high blackness level and its sensitivity to heat guarantees perfect sharpness and accuracy of printing which result in excellent legibility of barcodes. Printing speed is high and similar to the one for most wax ribbons (up to 300 mm/s) or up to 800 mm/s, and it can achieve as much as 1 m/s on packaging lines. Using wax and resin ribbons ensures good durability of print which is resistant to abrasion, smudging, and scratching at temperatures not exceeding 100°C usually, but sometimes reaching 150°C. The wax-resin ribbons are designed for thermal transfer printers regardless of the print head technology. Our products comprise ribbons for flat head and edge head printers as well as different ribbon classes depending on the amount of contained resin, so depending on the application.
