wax ribbon is a multi-purpose bar code printing ribbon that yields excellent results on a broad range of media. An economical solution for most general use applications, wax ribbonhas high quality inks, operates at low print energy, prolonging printhead life, and produces high quality, sharp and clear bar codes and images.
Thermal ribbon made with wax is the most common type of thermal transfer ribbon. Due to its durability, full-wax thermal ribbons are typically used on coated and uncoated paper stock. It is the least expensive and is the optimal choice for short-term use.
Wax thermal ribbon can fulfill you Thermal Transfer Printing needs where moderate durability is required. Since these ribbons require the lowest printing energy (lower melting temperature), the ink easily transfers onto the label.
However, when an application requires higher durability and resilience against chemicals and environmental factors, we mostly recommend wax/resin or resin ribbons.
