Standard applications, Wax quality : AWR/AWX
Economy and quality
The AWR/AWX wax range is an economical and quality identification solution dedicated to «flat head» technology : it stands apart thanks to multipurpose labels, and is particularly adapted to all vellums and coated paper medias.
This range is recognised as being exceptionnally sensitive and densely black. The quality of the backcoating gives excellent protection to the print head. Different versions are available to ensure optimum ink transfer at lowest energy. The AWX range is particularly remarkable for its good resistance to smudge.
AWX 470 is a general purpose wax ribbon enhanced with resin particularly adapted to standard label printing where good mechanical resistance is required.
The ink provides excellent print quality of picket and ladder barcodes, very small text, large characters, and logos, at a blackness above 2.1 (ODR).
The ribbon structure allows printing on various receptors, such as coated and uncoated papers, and some synthetics. The printed ink offers improved smudge resistance compared to standard wax, and heat resistance up to 65°C (149°F).
These characteristics remain at speeds up to 300 mm/s (12 ips), and with 200, 300 and 600 DPI printheads.
AWX470+ features ARMOR's outstanding backcoat technology, ensuring excellent printhead protection, preventing clogging and static build-up.
