Below is an explanation of what each grade is and why that particular thermal ribbon will be suitable for the application you require.
Wax – Inexpensive, most popular thermal transfer ribbon.
Label material: Suitable if you are printing onto matt or semi-gloss paper labels /card tags.
A wax ribbon is the lowest cost choice for a thermal ribbon. Wax is the softest ribbon making it more vulnerable to smudging and scratching.
Wax Resin – Long life, smudge resistant thermal transfer ribbon.
Label material: Suitable if you are printing onto semi-gloss paper or synthetic labels.
A wax resin ribbon combines wax and resin to makes these thermal ribbons smear and smudge resistant. It is the preferred choice of thermal ribbon for paper labels and the choice for synthetic labels that do not need to resist chemicals or extreme temperatures.
Resin – Long life, scratch and chemical resistant thermal ribbon.
Label material: Suitable if you are printing onto synthetic labels.
A resin ribbon is the hardest thermal ribbon type; it is scratch and chemical resistant. Resin is the choice for printing synthetic labels going into harsh environments where print needs to be resistant against smearing, scratching, moisture (waterproof), abrasion, extreme temperature or chemicals.
Samples are available on request.
