Identifying a product throughout its lifespan

The print quality and durability of a rating plate are vital to maintain data legibility at each stage of the product life cycle: manufacture, utilisation, repair and recycling.

A print solution providing resistance to demanding environments

The rating plates on electrical, electronic and household appliances are subject to a wide range of attack depending on the function of the product: the heat of an oven or fridge motor, abrasion and dust with a drill, UV and rain on an exterior air conditioning unit, etc.
A damaged print may compromise the identification of parts during repair, or may even cause the product to be put to an inappropriate use.
The strength of Thermal Transfer technology is its wide selection of adhesive labels and inked ribbons which offer an appropriate solution for every environment of use.

inkanto ribbons for nameplate printing

Within the range of inkanto Thermal Transfer ribbons, the Resin inks (AXR® range) are highly suitable for the synthetic materials generally used for nameplates.
The high level of adhesion of the inkanto Resin inks to the label surface protects the print from aggressive attack: abrasion, solvents, heat, fats, cold, UV, etc.

Within the range of inkanto Thermal Transfer ribbons there are solutions for complying with EU Directives 2011/65/EC (RoHS) and 2002/96/EC (WEEE), as well as meeting the restrictions of halogen contents and the UL standard on printed label durability.
