THERMAL TRANSFER RIBBONS
Print your barcode, shipping label or any other label with thermal transfer ribbon
Point Scandinavia provides thermal transfer ribbons for printers. We offer a range of wax, wax/resin and resin ribbons to suit almost every application. Thermal transfer ribbons are used for printing in the graphic labels industry and the packaging industry for printing of barcodes, packaging film and labeling applications. We provide several formulations in black and colours to match your printer and substrate. The thermal transfer ribbon are either coated side in or coated side out. Our ribbons allow printing at lower temperatures and faster speed which result in reduced print head costs and lower overall energy usage. All ribbons are non toxic and heavy metal free formulations. We supply quality ribbons in various widths and lengths depending on the requirements of your label printer. Please inform us about type and model of your printer when you ordering TTR ribbons. Contact us for detailed information and price.

- Lower temperatures and less energy use
- Ability to print in fast speeds
- High contrast printing bar codes
- High strength and durability
- Print a broad range of packaging substrates
There are three types of ink coatings for TTR ribbons.
WAX 100 Thermal Ribbon
General purpose labels. Wax is the most cost effective option for thermal transfer ribbon.
Used for paper labels, matt or semi-gloss. Less image durability. No resistance to abrasion, oils, chemicals or anything that could dissolve the wax image. The labels have to remain dry to last long. Allow fast printing speeds and uses less energy at the printing head. Indoor use. Less heat is required.
- Excellent print on paper labels
- Text and barcode printing
Coated paper, uncoated paper, glossy paper
Packing labels, product identification labels, logistic labels
WAX-RESIN 110 Thermal Ribbon
General Purpose Printing
Used for very fine, smooth papers, coated papers, semi or gloss or synthetic stocks.
Better resistance than wax. Printed image is fine but more durable than image printed using wax ribbon. Not exposed to moisture. Greater resistance to friction and standing compared to wax. Some scratch resistance. More heat than wax is required.
- Excellent print density and definition
- Resistance to solvent and abrasion
- Excellent for a broad range of paper labels and synthetics
- Fast print speeds
- Good scratch and smudge resistance
Coated paper, uncoated paper, glossy paper, synthetic paper, PET, PP,PVC film
Packing label, logistic labels, product identification label, hang tag, industrial labels
RESIN 120 Thermal Ribbon
Maximum Durability on Synthetic Material
Used for printing plastic film labels. Including polyester, vinyl and polypropylene. Depending on the label material and resin ribbon can be exposure to chemicals, oils, harsh weather, water etc. Best for extreme environment. Outdoor use possible. Provide scratch resistance on labels require extra durability. More heat than wax or wax/resin is required.
- Excellent abrasion and solvent resistance
- High performance
- Excellent on synthetic labels
- Premium solution for high durability
- Good chemical and abrasion resistance
- Indoor and outdoor applications
Scratch resistance, abrasion, gasoline, alcohol, saltwater, chemical, oil.
Synthetic paper, PET,PP,PVC Film
Cosmetic label, health care label, automotive label, biochemical label, hang tag, industrial label, pharmaceutical packaging.
