Thermal Ribbon Wax

Economical ribbons predominately used for general purpose labelling producing clear dark images for applications where limited scratch, smudge, heat and chemical resistance is required. Suitable for uncoated and coated papers.

This is the least expensive of all the Thermal Ribbons. They have a high percentage of wax based product in the colourant. Waxes have little image durability against smudge, scratch chemical and environmental resistance.

These ribbons are best used where there is not much abrasion or physical contact against the print, or not required to last for an extended period.

Wax ribbons can be used for:-

  • General purpose labels
  • Shipping labels
  • Address labels
  • Garment tags
  • Price tickets
  • Warehouse applications
