- Apr 11, 2018 -

Thermal printing ribbons, also known as hot stamping colors, also known as ribbons, are printer consumables that are polyester or other high-density films coated with a wax-based, resin-based, or mixed ink on one side. Lubricant is applied on the side without ink to prevent the print head from being worn and damaged. The common axis of the ribbon is paper and plastic. The main requirement is that it cannot be deformed and cannot slide during printing. Common colors with wax base, wax tree mixed base, resin base several. At present, we use color coded ribbons, infusion bag ribbons, special resin ribbons for washing fabrics, carbon ribbons for ribbons, barcode ribbons, wax-color ribbons, hybrid ribbons, ribbons, and resins. Base - ribbons and other models.

The actual product is a rolled, colored, thermal transfer ribbon that is mounted on a thermal transfer printer after cutting to print the barcode. When used, it needs to be cut to a specific length according to the user's requirements and installed on the thermal transfer printer. This ribbon complies with the “Taxes” description of “typewriter ribbons or similar ribbons” under heading 96.12 –

Ribbons, whether mounted or boxed, are used on typewriters, computers or any other machine with a ribbon printing device (automatic balances, tabulation machines, teletype telegraph machines, etc.).

This heading also includes ribbons for recording instruments such as air pressure, temperature, etc., with ink, etc., usually affixed with metal fittings for fixing the activity of the pointer of the recorder.

These ribbons are usually made of woven fabrics, but they can sometimes be made of plastic or paper. The ribbon that is incorporated into this product must be inked or otherwise processed to leave an imprint (eg, impregnating the fabric webbing, or painting plastic or paper tape with a coloring material, ink, etc.).
