Thermal Transfer Ribbons

Thermal transfer (TT) ribbons are special ribbons that transfer the ink to labels through the heat from the ribbon; the thermal transfer effect. ALT Technologies continually tests them for imprintability to ensure they efficiently and successfully transfer the ink to your labels for a clean and smooth finish. The ribbons have a big impact on how durable the label text will be, as well as any abrasion effects during the lifetime of the product, and its performance during high-speed prints. ALT provides consecutive printing for customers.

Benefits of Thermal Transfer Ribbons
