Wax / Resin ribbons are a combination of wax and resin based colorant substances
in which resin substances hold a greater percentage. Wax / Resin ribbons are made
of two or more layers. Resin substances have a highier melting point thus increasing
the melting point of the ribbon. Printing with Wax / Resin ribbons takes place at
a highier heat or energy setting then wax ribbons. As resins are harder then waxes
image durability ,chemical resistance and abrasion smudge scratch resistance is
more than that of wax based ribbons. They also assure excellent edge definition.
Wax / Resin ribbons can be used with glossy or smooth surfaces, synthetic materials.
Printing speeds of 16 inches per second can be achieved with Wax / Resin ribbons.
Wax / Resin ribbons can be used for all purposes where wax ribbons are used but
where there is a chance of abrasion or scratch due to contact. Wax / Resin ribbons
are slightly expensive then wax ribbons.
