Thermal Transfer Labels

Thermal Transfer Labels Labels for Datamax, Sato, Zebra, Citizen, TSC, Toshiba Tec, Intermec, Printronix & More

Thermal Transfer Labels  printing uses more standard materials on the surface of it. That is to say that the labels etc. are not pre-impregnated with ink. Thermal transfer uses a process which requires a thermal carbon ribbon, the ink. As the label passes beneath the printhead the image is transferred via heat, from the ribbon to the label.

You can purchase ribbons suitable for your printer by clicking here – simply choose your printer brand.

The ribbon is positioned between the printhead and the label. As a secondary benefit it provides great protection to the printhead as it removes the distinct abrasion that is present when printing in direct thermal mode – this greatly saves wear and tear on printheads and is a potentially good cost saving by reducing the need for replacement printheads.

The main benefit re.the finished label and therefore the application is that it is not subject to degradation by heat and light and so it can be used confidently for applications which call for labelling long life products.

Guaranteed suitable for Datamax, Sato, Zebra, Citizen, TSC, Toshiba Tec and Intermec printers

There are quite a few ribbon types available today but generally the main ones come under the following four ribbon materials: Wax, Resin Enhanced Wax, Wax/Resin and Resin.

Should special ribbon grades be required then we can and do conduct tests of the material and ribbon to ensure that they are correct for your application prior to agreeing to supply the system.
