Wax Black Resin Ribbon Thermal Transfer Ribbon


Wax, black resin, and thermal transfer ribbon are all terms related to printing technology.

A ribbon is a plastic film coated with ink or wax that is used in thermal transfer printing. In thermal transfer printing, the ribbon is placed between the print head and the label or substrate, and heat is applied to transfer the ink or wax onto the label.

Wax ribbons are the most common type of ribbon and are made of a wax-based ink. They are typically used for printing on paper labels and are suitable for applications that do not require durability or resistance to harsh conditions.

Black resin ribbons, on the other hand, are made of a resin-based ink that is more durable and resistant to harsh conditions than wax ribbons. They are commonly used for printing on synthetic labels, such as polyester or polypropylene, and are ideal for applications that require resistance to abrasion, chemicals, and outdoor exposure.

Thermal transfer ribbons can be either coated-side-in or coated-side-out, depending on the printer model and the label material being used. It’s important to choose the right type of ribbon for your application to ensure optimal printing quality and durability.
