MACTAC IS NOW OFFICIALLY ARMOR'S MOST RECENT PARTNER

Armor is partnering with Mactac , a worldwide leader in the manufacture of self-adhesives for labelling, decoration and visual communication. The purpose of this partnership is to enhance Mactac’s existing portfolio of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approved durable films with thermal transfer ribbons. It includes the addition of Armor’s AXR 7+ thermal transfer ribbon to Mactac’s MH26726 UL file.


A partnership enabling the introduction of premium quality products:

Mactac Durable Films are high-performance adhesive labels designed specifically to resist the extreme hot and cold temperatures, moisture, UV light and chemical exposure often found in durable goods labeling applications. While Armor's      AXR 7+ thermal transfer ribbon is a super-premium resin ribbon with excellent print quality and known resistance to smudging, scratching and high temperatures.


A great combination for a better labeling experience:

By selecting the approved Mactac/Armor combinations, printers and converters can ensure label suitability and compliance with ANSI/UL 969 testing standards for displaying required safety information on UL-Certified products. Additionally, no further label testing is needed.
Mactac Durable Films with Armor AXR 7+ thermal transfer ribbon combination is intended for durable goods and industrial labeling applications such as power tools, appliances, electronics, compliance labels, and warning and instructional labels. They can be used to identify products, track or relay information, instruct or warn consumers about proper product usage.

Now, each of the following Mactac Durable Films has UL approval listed with ARMOR’s AXR 7+:
  • BDE6914: 2.6-mil white UV resistant polypropylene
  • VDG6911: 3.4-mil white vinyl
  • FCD6914: 2.0-mil white polyester
  • FED6914: 2.0-mil bright silver polyester
  • FFD6914N: 2.0-mil matte silver polyester
  • FJD6914: 2.0-mil bright silver void polyester

ARMOR introduces ARMOR Colombia

ARMOR is proud to announce the founding of ARMOR Colombia, a fully owned subsidiary based in Medellin, dedicated to the slitting and marketing of our Thermal Transfer ribbons

Our unique international expansion strategy is to get closer to our customers’ markets, bringing the product quality of a true manufacturer with solutions to logistics or administrative hassles, like long transportation lead-times or importation taxes. It’s started on the American continent with ARMOR USA in the late 90’s, ARMOR Brasil in 2007 and was accelerated with ARMOR Mexico in 2014, ARMOR Canada last year and now ARMOR Colombia.
 
Created from the acquisition of LUX label, a highly reputed player in the country, ARMOR Colombia brings high expectations for growth, developing the domestic market and serving other ARMOR partners from the Andean region. Medellin is a duty free area, enabling partners to get their products without paying additional import duties.
 
At a time when ARMOR has only recently launched its product range marketed under the brand name inkanto, ARMOR Colombia will be able to offer these products to its local customers from Q3 2018.


Long live ARMOR Colombia!

inkanto is now available worldwide

inkanto is reshaping ARMOR Thermal Transfer ribbon offering

In March 2018, after 2 years of preparing this strategic project with all ARMOR teams throughout the world, ARMOR has started shipping the first ribbons under the inkanto brand.

With inkanto, ARMOR wants to:

  • Provide its partners with additional means to create loyalty with their own customers.
  • Initiate a new dynamic on the TTR market.
  • Reinforce the difference of ARMOR ribbons with a creative name, a dynamic image and a new range of services.

In a market perceived as a commodity one, ARMOR is bringing a new kind of support to its partners with inkanto helping them to build loyalty through innovative products, services and sales arguments.

inkanto ribbons and boxes look different

  • The box of ribbons is designed to look modern and show the colourful inkanto graphic identity. When you look for your ribbon box in the warehouse, it is very easy to identify.
  • The box and ribbon labels are simplified to give a clear readability of the most important data: ribbon grade name, dimensions, printer compatibilities, traceability data.
  • The 3 inkanto ribbon families are easy to differentiate with their individual colour code: green for Wax, blue for Wax-resin and orange for Resin. It simplifies the identification of the ribbons and avoids having the incorrect ribbon in the printer.

 

A complete new ribbon offering that comes with new services

With inkanto, ARMOR has created services that have never been seen before on this market:







 
  • Each inkanto ribbon is backed by a lifetime guarantee to protect the end-user against any manufacturing defect.
  • Bad print quality is sometimes the result of ink or dust particles on the print-head, this is why each box of inkanto ribbons contains a cleaning wipe to encourage operators to take care of this crucial high-tech printer element.
  • Each box of inkanto ribbons is delivered with a complete and unique Certificate of Conformity to provide all traceability and quality data to the end-users.

These new services are bringing additional values to the ribbon and simplifying some of the daily burden of end-users.

inkanto marketing tools

The inkanto sample offer is now available to ARMOR partners in a pack which can be tailored to the needs of each end-user. It can be ordered by individual product grade, by product family (wax, wax resin and resin) or the complete range.

Online tools like the customer extranet and public website were redesigned to enhance both the look and the user experience.


Finally, ARMOR developed inkanto Pack which comprises inkanto end-user sales arguments ready-to use by resellers.



inkanto has demanded a lot of creativity and dedication from all ARMOR teams but the offering is now available from all 9 manufacturing sites worldwide.
