Thermal Transfer Ribbon

Thermal transfer films for heat application to labels

Thermal Transfer Ribbon

Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method in which material is applied to paper (or some other material) by melting a coating of ribbon so that it stays glued to the material on which the print is applied.

Thermal Transfer Ribbon is basically a polyester film on to which are coated different layers. These ink layers are then transferred to the label thanks to the heat delivered by the head of a thermal printer (you can check out our range of Zebra thermal-transfer printers here).

At Cutting Edge we can provide the three major types of Thermal Transfer Ribbon – Wax, Wax/Resin and Resin:

  • Wax ribbons are great for standard printing on paper materials.
  • Wax/Resin ribbons provide prints that are highly resistant to chemicals on paper and synthetic materials.
  • Resin ribbons provide the ultimate in durability against chemicals and heat when printed on synthetic materials.
