Thermal Transfer Ribbon

Qualified, Economical, for All Industries

Thermal Transfer Ribbons

What is Ribbon?

It is a roll black film strip used in thermal transfer printing barcode label printers. It consists of three layers. Protective layer, polyethylene film and solid ink layer.
The solid ink layer is adhered on the polyethylene film. The thermal printhead of the barcode printer is in contact with the protective layer of the film. Heated thermal printhead heats the film over the protective layer, making the solid ink in liquid and smearing onto the label paper to produce the desired printing patterns. There are three kinds of ribbon all over the world. Wax Ribbon, Wax-Resin Ribbon ve Resin Ribbon. They are divided into groups according to the thermal heads of the barcode printers.

Wax Ribbon

Economic thermal transfer ribbon for general purpose. Reduced barcode printhead energy requirement increases barcode printhead life. It gives excellent print quality in small characters (over 4 points) for normal or vertical printed barcodes and texts. Scope of application; general purpose labeling, transportation storage and transportation labeling, shelf and box labeling, retail label applications, textile product labeling. The recommended maximum print speed is 300 mm / sec. Recommended paper types; coated, vellum, ttr cardboard, coated cardboard stop. Flat head barcode printers are also used. For example: Tec Toshiba B-SV4T, such as Argox X series, Argox G series, Argox OS series, Sato CL series, Sato GL series, Sato GT series, Zebra Z series, Zebra S series.

Wax Resin Ribbon

It is the ideal thermal transfer ribbon for high-resolution barcode printers that are more resistant to stain than general purpose wax ribbons. Reduced barcode printhead energy requirement increases barcode printhead life. It gives excellent print quality in small characters (over 4 points) for normal or vertical printed barcodes and texts. Scope of application; general purpose labeling, transportation storage and transportation labeling, shelf and box labeling, retail label applications, textile product labeling. The recommended maximum print speed is 250 mm / sec. Recommended paper types; coated, vellum, ttr carton, coated cardboard, synthetic, lacquered cardboard, pe (polyethylene), pp (polypropylene), Whitemat, PVC, Silvermat, Glosswhite. Flat head barcode printers are also used. For example: Tec Toshiba B-SV4T, such as Argox X series, Argox G series, Argox OS series, Sato CL series, Sato GL series, Sato GT series, Zebra Z series, Zebra S series.

Resin Ribbon

It is an ideal thermal transfer ribbon for general purpose high density, heat, wiping and abrasion resistant, non-static, permanent printing applications. Reduced barcode printhead energy requirement increases barcode printhead life. It gives excellent print quality in small characters (over 4 points) for normal or vertical printed barcodes and texts. Scope of application; Thermally bright packaging applications are used in automotive and all heavy industrial applications. The recommended maximum print speed is 300 mm / sec. Recommended paper types; Synthetic P.E (polyethylene), P.P (polypropylene), Whitemat, PVC, Silvermat, Glosswhite. Both Flat and Near Edge head barcode printers are also used. For example: Tec Toshiba, Avery Dennison, Sato, Argox, Zebra, Datamax.
