Thermal transfer film is required for the thermal transfer printing of paper or plastic labels. The terms color and thermal transfer ribbon, carbon ribbon, ribbon or printing film are also common. Thermal transfer film consists of polyester film, which is coated on one side with the respective quality and color layer and on the other side with silicone. The silicone protects the print head from static charge and wear due to friction. Thermal transfer foils are available in different qualities, lengths, widths and colors, so that you can always find the right foil for your individual application.

Qualities Thermal transfer foils are available in the following qualities: Wax, resin / wax and resin. Before buying, it is important to know the differences between the individual qualities, as this will help you find the ideal ribbon for your application. The label material plays an extremely important role in the selection, because thermal transfer film and label material should always be carefully combined in order to achieve the highest print quality. In addition, your thermal transfer printer should also be matched to the thermal transfer film, because there are also specific thermal transfer films for the printing techniques - nearedge and flathead.

• Wax: A thermal transfer film in wax quality is ideal for printing on paper labels. It requires low printing energy and achieves high printing speeds. Depending on the type of paper, the printed image has good smudge and abrasion resistance. Wax quality foils are inexpensive.

• Resin / Wax: A ribbon in wax-resin quality is a good choice when printing on smooth paper surfaces or plastic labels and best suitable for printers with medium printing energy. The quality of the print is characterized by high smudge and scratch resistance.

• Resin: A thermal transfer film in resin quality is recommended for printing on film labels. This quality offers a very high smudge and scratch resistance, also has high heat resistance and is resistant to solvents, petrol and alcohol. High printing energy is required.

Areas of application

• Wax: Ideal for logistics and retail applications, general purpose labeling, Labeling for shipping, receiving and inventory tracking.

• Resin / Wax: Used in industrial and retail applications, product labeling outdoors, in box, pallet retail and Shelf edge markings and when printing labels that are exposed to extreme wear or friction, solvents, steam, acid or lye solutions.

• Resin: Ideal for use in industrial and automotive applications and when used in harsh outdoor applications. Best suited for printing automotive labels, industrial nameplates and labels that are exposed to heat, steam, solvents, abrasion and harsh environments.


The use of a thermal transfer film or the use of thermal transfer printing has advantages, because the color of the thermal transfer film completely separates from it due to the heat and thus produces an excellent print image on the label. In addition, many different thermal transfer foils are available and users can use the appropriate thermal transfer foil depending on their applications and areas of application. In contrast to direct thermal printing, with which only black and white labels can be printed, you can also print labels with colored text with a colored thermal transfer film.
