Armor - AXR 9 Resin

AXR 9 Resin


AXR® 9 has been developed exclusively for textile printing with very high levels of mechanical resistance 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 1.2.

Excellent Mechanical and Temperature Resistance

The ribbon structure allows printing on most textile labels including nylon, polyester and acetate. The printed image is very sharp and offers excellent resistance to washing, dry cleaning and ironing with 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® 9 resin grade features outstanding back-coat technology that ensures excellent printhead protection preventing both clogging and static build-up.
