wax resin ribbons

The most common thermal ribbon used in Australia, is “WAX RESIN”.
As the name suggests, this thermal ribbon grade is a mixture of wax and resin. The resin in a thermal ribbon is what gives it better scratch and smudge resistance, so it is best for logistic labels or food packaging applications.
Within the grade wax resin, there are several variations which have different resin content levels. Depending on how much resistance you require you may be able to use a lower cost alternative which is often as good as the premium brands like Ricoh.

We recommend this grade for paper labels, and some synthetics where it will not be exposed to harsh conditions.
