Advantages of Videojet thermal transfer ribbons with backcoat technology

Not all Thermal Transfer Ribbons are made the same. Ribbon selection matters since it impacts the life of the thermal transfer printhead, the quality of the code, and ultimately the uptime of the packaging line. All Videojet ribbons feature advanced backcoat technology, a non-abrasive silicone-based coating that:

  • provides for optimal thermal conduction for ink transfer and optimal code quality
  • protects the printhead
  • extends printhead life
  • helps to dissipate static charge (which can damage the printhead and degrade code quality)
