CRE10 Flat Head Wax

Product Description​

This grade is a standard wax ribbon, designed to give outstanding print performance on plain and coated papers. This wax is recommended for applications where price is the main factor. It offers a black, crisp and bold print making it an ideal product for standard printing applications that require a low level of durability to the printed image. The low level of print head energy required to transfer the ink makes this wax a drop in replacement product for other waxes available in the market and will offer a good performance on all types of flat head technology printers. With print performance at speeds of up to 10” per second, at low print head energy, this wax maintains excellent quality on low cost substrates. This wax also has the additional advantage of being ISEGA approved for use when the printed image comes in contact with non-fatty foodstuffs.
