Armor - AXR 7+ Resin

AXR 7+ Resin


AXR® 7+ is dedicated to applications requiring a perfect printing quality and excellent mechanical resistance.

The ink provides excellent print quality for all types of barcodes, very small text, large characters and logos with an Optical Density Reflection of 1.7.

Excellent receptor sensitivity and high temperature resistance

The ribbon structure allows printing on many kinds of synthetics — PVC, PET, PE and PP — on various matt and high gloss coated papers and even some uncoated papers. The printed image is very sharp and offers very good levels of mechanical resistance, heat resistance up to 180° C and excellent light fastness.

High Speed Printing

Those characteristics remain at speeds up to 10-inches per second and is suitable for use on 200, 300 and 600 dpi printheads. AXR® 7+ Resin grade features outstanding back-coat technology that ensures excellent printhead protection preventing both clogging and static build-up.
