Wax Ribbon

These are the softest ribbons. Suitable for short-term and light durability applications. They provide an image that resists fading better than direct thermal labels.

Resin Ribbon

These are by far the most durable and abrasion-resistance of the three ribbon formulations.  Suitable in extreme heat or cold, harsh chemicals and solvents, rough abrasives, and outdoor environments. They have a wide range of typical uses and include medical device labelling and electrical component / printed circuit board (PCB) labelling.

Wax/Resin Ribbon

Wax-resin is more durable than full wax when it comes to scratch and smear resistance. Wax-resin blends are resistant to moderate-to-harsh chemicals, as well as more extreme temperatures. Some common applications include laboratory labelling, outdoor product or UL labelling.
