Readable and scannable codes can be a life-saver in environments that demand high durability from both label and print. As an example, packaging of chemicals/pharmaceuticals, medical devices, electronic/laboratory markings, car parts and pipe identification are items where proper product identification ensures that critical information is readable several years after printing.
Thermal Transfer has proven to be a popular, highly durable print technique which produces scannable print results. Therefore, Thermal Transfer Printing with resin ribbons is the preferred choice when for applications requiring durability against:
Find the Thermal Transfer Ribbon for your application requirements.
Different substrates and durability requirements might require a specific resin ribbon formulation. That is why, the combination of ribbon, substrate and correct printer settings should be considered to determine the quality of the print. For instance, resin TTR generally requires a higher transfer temperature setting of the printer over wax or wax/resin ribbons. However, resins also offer more durability of the printed image.
High heat settings ensure that the ink is properly transferred and conserved on the substrate for ultimate durability. When combined with the correct application speed and pressure, you can easily achieve a lasting print result.
Since the early ’80s, DNP (Dai Nippon Printing Co. Ltd.) has built-up a long-standing history of developing Thermal Transfer Ribbons. Its resin assortment is constantly evolving to meet evolving industry requirements. Our R&D team and market experts work closely together to bring relevant innovations to the market. As a result, our latest introduction, V300, offers versatility on many different substrates for a wide range of applications. This reduces the number of different ribbons needed to deliver the correct variable print.
Apart from V300, DNP has a wide range of resin ribbons in the TTR portfolio not only for general but also highly specific applications such e.g. boiling resistance, hologram variable printing for security applications etc. All resin ribbons are specially formulated with our exclusive back-coat technology that delivers anti-static properties for easy handling, uninterrupted printing and superior printhead protection.
DNP specialises in helping you harmonise substrate, printer and ribbon. All this, with ribbons tailored to your needs and technical support in our DNP lab or on-site, in your own production environment. Because at DNP, we believe in partnership, that provides the swift and tailor-made answers that you need.
