Zebra Ribbons

Zebra ribbons (for thermal transfer printers) are available in several formats — like wax ribbons for printing on paper materials, and resin/wax ribbons for durability against chemicals and heat resistance on synthetic materials.

Zebra wax ribbons come in standard, performance, and high performance formulas — each features unique properties that support particular label and tag printing needs. Standard wax thermal transfer ribbons provide minimal resistance to chemicals, but feature superior abrasion resistance and can print up to 12 inches per second on coated materials. Performance wax thermal transfer ribbons can print up to 8 inches per second on coated and uncoated papers, and provides minimal resistance against smearing, chemicals, and scratches. High performance wax thermal transfer can print up to 12 inches per second with minimal resistance against smearing, chemicals, and scratches.

Zebra wax/resin ribbons are available in standard and high performance formulas for a variety of applications. Standard wax/resin ribbons feature excellent resistance to harsh chemicals, smears, and scratches — great for outdoor environment and extreme temperatures. Premium wax/resin ribbons are also available.

Zebra resin ribbons are available in standard, premium, high performance, and image lock formulas. Standard resin ribbons are designed for use with synthetic and gloss paper, with excellent resistance against harsh chemicals, scratches, and smears. High-performance resin ribbons are also intended for synthetics and gloss paper, but feature excellent resistance to harsh chemicals and outdoor environments. Premium resin ribbons for gloss synthetics provide excellent resistance for extreme chemicals and extreme temperatures, and is even UL/cUL and CSA approved with select substrates.
