TR3020 Wax transparent flat-head ribbon

TR3020 is a transparent Thermal Transfer wax. This ribbon is designed to make rough surfaces thermal transfer printable or to laminate prints.

Specialty wax to make rough surfaces TTR printable and laminate print for extra protection

Sometimes, label materials are so rough that Wax/Resin and Resin ribbons do not work alone. TR3020 Transparent Wax is the product to overcome this and create a base for resistant printing. It works as follows:

  • As a protective layer on the top of TTR printed images, to improve the resistance,
  • As a “smoothing” layer to be printed on blank labels, to improve the printability of the label and make it smooth enough to be later printed with durable ribbons.
