R316 Resin heat resistant flat-head ribbon

R316 is a Thermal Transfer resin that is designed to make prints that withstand high temperatures. It is especially suitable for products that pass through an autoclave.

Highly durable and heat resistant resin, suited for autoclave applications

R316 is the industry’s best resin ribbon for printing on coated and synthetic paper substrates. It is also able to withstand environmental temperatures of up to 220° C (428° F) making it perfect for applications like heat tunnel passage and autoclaves. R316 uses remarkably low print energy settings while producing high quality heat resistant bar codes. This ribbon’s design incorporates DNP’s standard anti-static and backcoat properties that protect the printhead, and also prints with DNP’s unmatched edge definition producing clean, extremely durable, dense bar codes every time.
