What to Know About LabelTac Ribbon

Creating professional grade and durable labels has never been easier with the LabelTac printing system. LabelTac printers are thermal transfer printers that essentially use heat to melt wax onto a surface to create a label. It is important when using a LabelTac printer to use corresponding LabelTac brand supplies for the best result. Today we will look at LabelTac ribbon and why it is so crucial to the printing process.

Benefits of LabelTac Ribbon

With thermal transfer printing, think of the ribbon, a vinyl film, as the ink and the supply, usually a vinyl label, as the paper. The LabelTac ribbon is considered the toughest and most durable ribbons on the market.

LabelTac ribbon comes in rich, vibrant colors available in black, white, red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. The variety of colors truly gives you the opportunity to create any types of label your facility needs. Creative Safety Supply guarantees the labels you customize and print with the LabelTac ribbon will last for many years and will not smudge, smear, fade, or be scratched off over time. The ribbon is resistant to most oils and greases, aliphatic solvents, weak acids, salts, and alkalis.

There is also an option for workplaces or situation where labels will need to withstand harsh chemicals. Using the LabelTac UltraChem Ribbon alongside the LabelTac UltraChem Supply will produce labels that are extremely resistant to chemicals including ethanol, acetone, IPA, paint thinner, xylene, brake fluid, and many more! This is the ideal solution for labeling in the automotive industry, the medical/pharmaceutical industry, labeling chemical drums, and other situations where hazardous chemicals can come in contract with your label.

The LabelTac printer series gives you the opportunity to design, customize, and create labels in just a few minutes. If your facility regularly purchases many labels or you are about to undertake a large labeling project, it is probably a good time to invest in an industrial label printer. Having the ability to create a variety of labels in-house will save you money now and each time you print a label.
