Unmatched Print Quality and Durability

Ideal for use:

  • With high-end synthetic materials which require extreme resistance to harsh chemicals
  • In environments with high temperature and harsh environments that require excellent print quality, print durability and label performance
  • When applications require strong resistance against ultra-high temperatures and harsh outdoor environments

Print Quality and Durability Thoroughly Tested

Our supplies R&D team perform stringent print quality, durability and printhead life tests as well as printing on a wide range of material types, at various speeds using Zebra printers. These tests include evaluating:

  • Material Compatibility – To ensure proper adhesion of the ribbon to a wide range of materials
  • Environmental Performance – The level of resistance to chemicals, outdoor exposure and abrasion
  • Complex Label Format Performance – High Performance when printing small font sizes, intricate regulatory symbols, and rotated barcodes
  • Ribbon Backcoating Build-up – We measure the amount of back coating build up on the printhead to ensure minimal printhead impact.
