Thermal Transfer Ribbons
AFS Labels can be printed using several differing printing technologies. However, one of the most popular methods is called thermal transfer printing which uses roll-form labels and printing ribbons. This technology requires lower heat settings to transfer a printed image than some printing methods such as a laser toner process. For this reason, you have the widest variety of paper and film label materials at your disposal, including an extensive choice of label adhesives to fit special labeling applications.
Get quality, durable results with AFS quality ribbons. Choose from different types of thermal ribbons to match your application’s needs:
Wax ribbons for standard printing on paper materials
Wax/resin ribbons for excellent resistance to chemicals on paper and synthetic materials
Resin ribbons provide ultimate durability against chemicals and heat on synthetic materials
All the Ribbons AFS supply are carefully selected and tested to the same rigorous standards as our label materials. Each ribbon is tested with a variety of label materials and only accepts products into the range that meet a strict set of criteria. Only the very best ribbons become part of the AFS supply range. We can hold ribbons in stock at a variety of widths for all printers from narrow desktop wax ribbons to wide resin ribbons and for those times when black just won’t do, we also carry a range of wax coloured and white resin ribbons.
