Zebra Thermal Transfer Ribbons for Zebra Barcode Label Printers
Zebra barcode label printers are among Canada’s most popular thermal transfer printers used by businesses. Thermal transfer printers require the use of a thermal transfer ribbon, which when heated by the thermal printhead, release ink onto the label. Ribbons are consumables and must be replaced.
Argon Technology has a large selection of Zebra thermal transfer ribbons for use with Zebra barcode label printers. These ribbons come on a 1-inch core wound with the ink side coated OUT, which is the requirement for most Zebra thermal transfer printers.
Zebra Ribbon Types
The main Zebra ribbon types are:
- Zebra wax ribbons — Wax-formulated ribbons are the most economical ribbons and are used for everyday printing purposes, typically on paper labels.
- Zebra wax-resin ribbons — The inclusion of resin in wax-resin ribbons adds durability and helps to produce crisper images on smooth or coated paper labels.
- Zebra resin ribbons — Resin-formulated ribbons are the most durable Zebra ribbons, offering resistance to oil, chemicals, and water. Use resin ribbons with synthetic labels.
Within the wax, wax-resin, and resin categories are various formulations such as enhanced, standard, and premium ribbons as well as specialty, coloured, and metallic ribbons.
