What Type Of Thermal Transfer Ribbon Can Be Used To Print Synthetic Labels?

What type of thermal transfer ribbon can be used to print synthetic labels?


Material properties: Compared with paper material, synthetic material are stronger and more beautiful, have a wider range of application to the environment, and have higher requirements for thermal transfer ribbons.


Recommended ribbons for synthetic material: wax/resin ribbons and resin ribbons

    With more and more types of labels and ribbons, many novices don't know how to distinguish which type of ribbon is suitable for their labels. Here, I want to share some knowledge about synthetic label paper. Synthetic label materials can be divided into:

  * PET 

  * PVC 

  * BOPP 

  * PE 

  * PS 

  * POLYIMIDE 

  * Metalized PET mainly includes laser rainbow film, brushed film, gold (gloss, matt) silver (gloss, matt).


Compared with paper materials, these synthetic materials are stronger and more beautiful, have a wider range of application to the environment, and have higher requirements for barcode ribbons. They mainly use wax resin ribbon and full resin ribbon. It depends on the user's requirements and the use environment. If only anti-friction is required, wax resin ribbon can be used. If there are other requirements, such as corrosion resistance and high temperature resistance, it is necessary to use resin ribbon.
