Wax thermal transfer ribbons – the ink is made on the basis of wax, sometimes with a little resin additive. Wax ribbons are used mostly for printing paper matte and semi-gloss labels. The imprint is characterised by low resistance to abrasion. Therefore, the ribbons are intended for printing temporary markings. They are used mainly in places where price is paramount, that is in the field of trade and logistics, for printing product, address, transport and logistic labels. They ensure appropriate readability of markings for these applications.
