This grade is an excellent all round premium wax/resin ribbon for printing dark, crisp images and bar codes on a wide range of paper and synthetic labels, with the durability and smudge/scratch resistance expected of such a premium product. Developed specifically to cover the widest possible range of pre-printed labels, it gives excellent performance on various inks used in the spot and flood coating processes, eliminating any possible slippage during the printing process. Additional thermal transfer varnish on the label is not required, thus reducing total cost of ribbon and label. It also features an excellent backcoat system which combined with the unique ink formulation dissipates static and is versatile enough to print on a wide variety of both paper and synthetic label stocks. Meets ANSI Standard A for scratch and smudge resistance.
