CRN20 Near Edge Wax Resin

Product Description​

This premium wax resin grade is an all round high performance grade of wax resin ribbon that has a slightly lower content of resin. This allows for a better print performance on vellum, uncoated papers, coated and uncoated card tags, synthetic films, medical paper & Tyvek although there is a slight loss of durability when printed onto synthetics films. This grade is ideally suited for tray end card applications using Toshiba near edge printers found within the fresh produce packing industry. The product has been proven as a drop in replacement for the branded products supplied by OEMs such as ToshibaTEC, Avery, Markem, Videojet & ICE. ISEGA approval and manufactured to BRC global standards makes this grade the ideal choice for printers used in food packaging applications. NEX20 offers bold, black prints at speeds up to 16 inches per second.
