Super Premium Resin for Flat Head Printer (Expert)
Excellent printing quality on textile materials
Excellent resistance to washes and dry cleaning
Very good resistance to ironing
AXR®9 is a resin ribbon designed for the textile label printing market. It can also represent a relevant solution for niche resin applications (involving for example sterilization or resistance to some solvents) which are not satisfied by other resin ribbons.

25 MILLION BLOOD BAGS MARKED WITH AXR 9
Guaranteeing the legibility of traceability data in demanding environments.
This global giant supplies hospitals and blood donation centres with complete blood management solutions (devices, software, consultancy). For this sensitive activity subject to strict regulations, the head office of Haemonetics located in Braintree, Massachusetts, selects the best offers on the market to create the solutions it offers to its customers worldwide.
It has therefore selected the inkanto Thermal Transfer resin film AXR®9 to equip the Zebra PAX4 print-and-apply printers on the production lines for plasma bottles located in a controlled environment.
The particular demands of this production process and, more specifically, packaging process, are such that the specifications setting out the required levels of resistance from the print solution incorporates the following constraints:
Gamma sterilisation process
Storage at a temperature of -50C° over 6 months
Thawing through condensation
High pressure shower at a temperature of +70C°
Abrasion during transportation
During test phases, the manufacturer was able to validate the non-toxicity of the ink followed by real-life test conditions: freezing, thawing, humidification, ageing, and resistance to the adhesive ribbon, all of which were fully satisfactory.
The excellent application properties combined with the flexibility offered by Thermal Transfer technology in terms of the printing of variable data, not to mention the savings to be made by using white labels rather than pre-printed labels, were the factors behind the approval of the solution.
