How to distinguish between wax ribbons and resin ribbons?
- May 21, 2018 -

It is difficult for ordinary people to distinguish wax ribbons and resin ribbons from the naked eye, and it is not recommended that customers judge only from the appearance to select barcode ribbons when they purchasing. You can test the ribbons'quality by using is with the corresponding label materials and seeing its printing results. Or try to put the two ribbons together, see the pulled ribbon under the sunlight, the wax ribbon is the darkest, almost opaque, and the resin ribbon is the most transparent, light yellow color, And the wax ribbon is pure black, the resin ribbon has the bar or other regular pattern coating.

Of course, it's impossible for every ribbon buyer to be able to test it before purchasing. Sometimes it's anxious to use it. So pls communicate with the ribbon seller and inform us the printed label material and print requirements (scratch resistance and resistance Alcohol, high temperature...) as detail as possible, we will recommend the right barcode ribbon for you.
