Wax and Resin Ribbons

Zebra ribbons ensure consistently high-quality and durable results, reducing downtime and inconsistency in print quality, while Zebra’s extensive testing procedures maintain outstandingly high standards. Choose from three types of thermal ribbons depending on your specific needs:

  • Wax ribbons for standard printing on paper materials
  • Wax/resin ribbons for reliable resistance to chemicals on paper and synthetic materials
  • Resin ribbons for ultimate durability against chemicals and heat on synthetic materials

Zebra ribbons can reduce the risk of problems such as inconsistent print quality, reprints and scannability issues, which in turn reduces unscheduled downtime. In addition, using Zebra ribbons helps to extend the life of the printhead – which reduces the overall lifetime costs of your printer.

With more than 20 years of experience, Cobalt can provide expert advice on which media and ribbons to use. For more information, feel free to contact our helpful team.
