Armor - AXR 8 Resin

AXR 8 Resin


AXR® 8 is dedicated to applications that requires the highest levels of chemical and heat 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 1.8.

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 glossy coated papers. The printed image is very sharp and offers excellent mechanical, solvent and heat resistance up to 250° C and excellent light fastness.

High speed consistent printing

Those characteristics remain at speeds up to 200 mm per second and is suitable for use on 200, 300 and 600 dpi printheads. AXR® 8 resin grade features outstanding backcoat technology that ensures excellent printhead protection preventing both clogging and static build-up.
