Choosing the right thermal transfer ribbon is critical to delivering the right care to your patients. With complex barcoding becoming mandatory for more healthcare environments it’s important to choose a partner able to provide ribbons that ensure a crisp and durable print that won’t fade or scratch when exposed to solvents or abrasion.
Unlike Direct Thermal Printing where heat activates ink inside a paper label Thermal Transfer Printing creates a permanent image by using heat to melt a ribbon coating which then stays glued to the material it comes into contact with. This form of printing is especially popular in the demanding environments of hospital, compounding, long term care, and more.
We pride ourselves on the diversity of our offering and ability to help match you up with the correct thermal transfer ribbon for your needs. Our experience with both wax and resin pharmaceutical grade ribbons allows us to deliver the right product for your application and needs.
