Barcode ribbon

When we buy the barcode ribbons, it is necessary to decide the ink material (wax, wax resin or resin) and the ribbon size. In order to find the right barcode ribbon to have the best printing performance, we need to consider the following points.

1)    What kind of printer that you want to use on

Under the thermal transfer printing condition, the ribbon and the label are consumed at the same time, the ribbon width should larger than label width and less than printer’s largest loading width. As different printers have different sizes, so the largest length and width of the ribbons and label concerned are also different. Besides, the printing head working temperature and the ribbon sensitivity also have a great effect on the final printing performance.

2)    What substrates that you want to print on

Generally speaking, chrome paper is a bit rough, suggest the wax or wax resin ribbon; while the PET paper is smooth and glossy, we should choose the resin ribbon.

3)    The durability that you want

If we want to have a better durability, suggest the resin ribbon.

4)    The cost you can bear

Generally, the cost of the wax ribbon is more economic, the wax resin ribbon is the second and the resin ribbon is the most expensive.

5)    The demands of the label, such as abrasion resistance, scratch resistance, smear resistance, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, etc.

If the label is scratch resistance, smear resistance, corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, it can be attrition frequently, so the label need to be high scratch resistance. In this condition, suggest the resin ribbon or the wax resin ribbon

6)    At what speed that you want to print, we need to choose the high sensitivity ribbon at the high printing speed.

Printing substrates is the printing material that can be printed on by label printer. According to the appearance, there are ribbons, cards and labels. According to the material, there are paper, synthetic material and fabric. Choose which kind of carbon ribbon mainly depends on the substrates material, there are some introduction of substrates here.

Paper can be divided into highlight, semi glossy and matte according to surface gloss.

Highlight: high gloss, glossy art paper,etc.

Semi glossy: chrome paper

Matte: offset paper

Specialty paper: aluminized paper, fluorescent paper, thermal transfer paper

General speaking, printing on the highlight substrates, we choose the premium resin enhanced wax ribbon or the wax resin ribbon, especially the high gloss paper, through it is called chrome paper, but there is synthetic varnish film on the surface, so it should be treated as synthetic material. About the semi glossy, we can choose the premium resin enhanced wax ribbon or the general wax ribbon. And the matte, we only choose the wax ribbon. Synthetic material can be divided into the following parts:

* PET

* PVC

* BOPP

* PE

* PS

* POLYIMIDE

* Metallization PET mainly includes laser iridescent film, wiredrawing film, gold (highlight, matte), silver (highlight, matte).

Compared to paper material, those materials are intensity and beauty, wide application to the environment, high requirements to ribbon, so we mainly use the wax resin ribbon and resin ribbon, and choose which kind of ribbons according to users’ demands and use environment. For example, it requires scratch resistance, but when it has some other requirements, such as anti-corrosion and high temperature resistance, we can only choose the PET(180℃) and POLYMIDE(300℃).

The above is the general case, but there are many different kinds of material, in order to achieve the satisfied printing effect, we should do many test according to our own case to find the right ribbons.
