The main features of APR/APX wax-resin range are the high quality of its performances and its wide field of applications.
This range of ribbons gives excellent results on coated papers and synthetics (PE, PP, PET…). It has good resistance to smudge, is capable of printing barcodes at 90° and has sharp definition.
This range is recognised for the exceptional quality of its backcoating, which gives good protection to the print head.
- Very high resistance to smudge and scratch
- Excellent sensitivity and receptor multi-compatibility
- Very good printing quality at high speed
APX 650 combines a multi receptor compatibility with good level of performance, especially in terms of mechanical resistances.
This high versatility allows it to fulfil the requirements of many applications.
The ink provides excellent printing quality of all types of barcodes, very small text, large characters and logos, at a blackness up to 1.7 (ODR).
The ribbon structure allows printing on various kinds of receptors, such as uncoated and coated papers and synthetics.
The printed image offers a good level of smudge resistance, resistance to scratching and heat resistance up to 110°C.
Those characteristics remain at speeds up to 600 mm/s (24 ips), and with 200, 300 and 600 DPI printheads, making this ribbon perfectly adapted either to the labelling market or the packaging overprinting market.
