Thermal Transfer Printing

Thermal transfer printing is the most frequently used technology worldwide to transfer variable data (such as barcodes, serial numbers, logos, dates of sales …) onto labels and flexible packaging.

This data enables identification and tracking of products for the duration of their lifetime. It is therefore essential to use the right combination of print technology and substrate to ensure a durable result.

This best in class printing technology, combined with the durability of Polyart synthetic paper, offers the best solution for your industrial labels.

Thermal transfer printing gives excellent results on Polyart.

  • Polyart works with all 3 major categories of ribbons : wax, wax/resin and resin.
  • Polyart is compatible with a very wide range of ribbons from all manufacturers.
  • Its clean, sharp print definition improves the scanability of bar-codes.

DNP is the world largest manufacturer of thermal transfer ribbons for bar code and die sublimation printers; they have carried out an evaluation of the Polyart range. The results were excellent and confirmed that the attributes of Polyart are highly compatible with thermal transfer printing.
