Wax ribbons belong to the most economic quality group and have been designed especially for applications using low printing energy. They have been developed mainly for paper labels where excellent results are achieved even on rough surfaces.
The formula of premium ribbons is based on wax and resin. They are applied at medium printing energy. Premium ribbons guarantee accurate and detailed prints on smooth surfaces and are suitable for plastic labels. Compared with wax ribbons the abrasion and scratch resistance is much higher.
Resin ribbons have been designed for smooth plastic surfacesand accurate printing results with high durability and are applied at high printing energy. They are particulary abrasion resistant, scratch resistant and also resistant against gasoline, alcohol and some solvents.
