Wax Ribbons

Different types of hard and soft waxes are used in wax ribbons. They are generally used for short term applications where the image is not required to stand up to repeated scratching, contact with chemicals, or high temperatures. Wax ribbons can be printed on a wide range of label stocks, but the most common and economical match is coated paper.

 

Wax ribbons work well on coated and uncoated paper stocks and print at higher speeds and lower temperatures than wax/resin or resin ribbons.

 

Wax ribbon has longer storage time, the better product stability, excellent heat resistance and abrasion, making the printer picture much more durable, clear and smooth.

Recommended substrates:

 

Coated paper, uncoated paper, glossy & semi glossy paper.

 

Ideal for Use:

 

•General purpose of labelling

•Retail labelling

•Product identification label

•Healthcare

•Warehouse and Logistics

Resin Ribbons

Resin ribbons offer the highest degree of scratch resistance. They are also resistant to a wide range of solvents and can be used in applications in which very high temperatures are encountered.

The ink is designed to slightly dissolve into the plastic surface of the label. The tight adhesion of the ink to the surface of the label renders the printing extremely durable.

 

Excellent solvent resistance and heat resistance, extreme abrasion resistance, extensive label adaptability, applicable to various types of labels and tags

 

Recommended substrates:

 

Coated paper, synthetic paper, and film (Polyester, Polyethylene, Polypropylene, PVC)

Ideal for Use:

 

•General purpose of labelling

•Metal

•Chemical drums

•Cosmetic label

•Automotive Label
