Thermal Transfer Ribbon
S&K Asia Thermal Transfer Ribbons are mostly used for printing variable information. This particularly concerns information for identification, such as barcodes, batch codes and expiry dates. Printing with this method is preferred when a durable result is needed, for example against heat, chemicals and abrasion. In addition, It works well in making highly durable non-variable information, such as warning signs.
Different types of ink?
The ink used in the Thermal Transfer process can be made with wax, resin, or wax/resin. As a result, the different types of ribbons have a different print sensitivity. This means they transfer ink at different temperatures of the printhead.
