The thermal transfer printing ribbon is a polyester film with an ink coating. There are three types of ink coatings for thermal transfer printing.

Wax ribbon

Wax allows for extremely fast printing speeds and uses less energy at the print head. This ribbon creates exceptional results on a variety of surfaces (smooth or textured).

Recommended use: Labels for cardboard packaging and basic product identification labels

Wax/resin ribbon

The wax/resin ribbon has the same properties as the wax ribbon while providing greater resistance to friction and staining.

Recommended use: Vinyl label (glossy or synthetic) printing

Resin ribbon

The resin ribbon is ideal for labels used in extreme conditions. Printing material is made exclusively from polyesters, polypropylenes, or vinyl.

Recommended use: Labels exposed to chemical products, products stored in extreme temperatures or outdoors

Many different types of thermal transfer ribbons exist and IMS has the most popular printer models from the best brands.
