Product Features 

Z214 High speed, near edge wax/resin barcode ribbon is used for imprinting date, price, lot and bar codes directly onto flexible packaging. This Premium wax resin formulation is coated on a 4.0 micron PET- carrier film designed for use on TTO in-line/near edge printers at speeds up to 40 ips. This thinner film technology offers improved productivity through longer length ribbons and reduced printer downtime related to ribbon changeovers. Z214 provides excellent print darkness and is compatible with a wide range of film materials, as well as offering excellent scratch and smear resistance. Low transfer energy properties combined with our anti-static back coat allow the user to extend the life of the printhead and reduce maintenance costs.
