M265 Wax/resin ultra durable flat-head/near-edge ribbon

M265 is a Thermal Transfer wax/resin that delivers ultra-durable print results. It is ideal for preprinted labels, offering high resistance to heat and abrasion.

M265 is the most durable wax/resin in the DNP-range

M265 offers a unique combination of printability and resistance: it prints like wax/resin but provides resistance similar to resin performances. It is unbeatable for applications where high resistance is needed but resins are limited in terms of print sensitivity or high speed adaptability. M265 prints up to 12 IPS with standard anti-static and backcoat properties, and also prints on varnished or pre-printed labels.
