Wax Resin Thermal Transfer Ribbon: made to deliver excellent quality

Thermal Transfer is a flexible printing technique that continuously delivers durable and compliant variable print at high production speeds. As a result of being a direct technique, Thermal Transfer limits the influence of outside factors on the print result. Owing to this trait, Thermal Transfer Printing ensures high performance in terms of durability and resistance, often required and regulated in the production of food, pharmaceuticals, outdoor materials, and many more.

What is a Wax resin Thermal Transfer Ribbon?

In a Wax resin ribbon, the ink is captured in a mix of soft wax and hard resin. Wax resin ribbons make prints that are more resistant to scratching, rubbing and chemicals. These ribbons need a higher temperature for the ink to be transferred onto the substrate. Wax Resin ribbons are suitable for both print & apply and in-line flexible packaging applications. For in-line printing at high speed, wax resins are the obvious choice

Wax Resin: first choice for in-line print-on-packaging

In-line print on packaging, especially on flexible materials, demands specific Thermal Transfer Ribbons. This is because the high speeds of the production line make near-edge thermal transfer printing the only option. Certainly, a Wax Resin has the proper combination of characteristics to perform according to industry standards:

  • Wax particles: Ensuring that the ink is easily transferred, compensating for unevenness of the surface,
  • Resin particles: Securing durability of the variable print.

Owing to these characteristics, Wax Resin Thermal Transfer Ribbons are suitable for not only print & apply but also flexible packaging applications where more durability or speed is needed.
