High Performance Solution

B120 is a premium wax-resin ribbon for flathead thermal transfer printers. Engineered to give outstanding print quality on a huge range of label materials, the B120 sets new standards for the variety of substrates that can be printed perfectly using just one formulation.

Superior Quality

B120's low energy release and Printhead Saver® technology back coating make it ideal for high speed applications where legible print is imperative and often a legal requirement. The superior abrasion, chemical and smear resistance of the B120 has also been achieved whilst ensuring compliance with RoHS directive 2002/95/EC.
