Thermal Transfer and TTO Ribbon
When it comes to ribbon, whether you need economical wax, durable resin, or anything in between, we can provide you with whatever ribbon you need.
Ribbons should be as wide as or wider than the label material. This will help protect the printhead from etching.
Ribbons come in different varieties as well: wax, wax/resin and resin. Typically usage is 60% wax, 30% wax/resin and 10% resin. Wax is a basic ribbon used for applications where scuffing and handling are not a concern. It marks well but is easily scratched off. Wax/resin provides a more durable mark and can stand up to most conditions. Resin is the most resilient of the three and is used in chemical drum applications or applications where a long term mark is needed.
