The chemical and physical properties on the surface of a label stock’s face material determine the type of thermal transfer ribbon that will be compatible. There are three main types of ribbon: Wax, Wax/Resins and Resins.
 

Wax Ribbons

 
Wax ribbons are the most commonly used ribbon type and provide an economical solution for thermal transfer. Wax ribbons can be used with comparatively absorbent uncoated face papers as well as with coated papers.
 

Wax/Resin Ribbons

 
Wax/Resin ribbons supply high performance for a variety of end-uses. The mechanical resistance of the printed image is very good. Wax/resin ribbons are intended for use with non-absorbent materials such as coated paper and films, but they can also be used with Vellum when exceptional mechanical resistance is required.
 

Resin Ribbons

 
Resin ribbons are designed for use in very demanding applications. Images printed with a resin ribbon have very high resistance to mechanical wear, solvents and heat. This type of ribbon is usually used with filmic face materials like PE, PP and PET, and comparatively less transfer ink is required to produce an opaque image.
