Wax Resin Ribbons

Wax Resin Thermal ribbons are perfect for resisting chemicals on paper or synthetic label materials. You can find a wide variety of ribbons from manufacturers like Zebra, Datamax, Intermec, Sato, Cognitive and BarcodeFactory brand wax-resin ribbons. Ribbons can be purchased by single roll quantities or by the case!

The barcodefactory offers great quantity discounts when you purchase their ribbons in large quantities!

How ribbons work in conjunction with a Thermal Printer. Thermal transfer printing uses a high carbon, thermal transfer ribbon which passes between the printhead and label facestock. The heat from the printhead causes the ribbon’s ink to be released and bind to the stock or label. Thermal transfer is the most effective way of producing rugged labels.

In this case Wax-Resin ribbons are an excellent choice for producing labels to withstand some chemicals and elements.
