DNP IAM is pleased to announce the release of R550 Extreme Durable Resin. R550 is a resin thermal transfer ribbon designed for use in flathead printers, providing the highest level of mechanical and chemical durability. With particularly outstanding resistance to gasoline, this formulation is highly recommended for the automotive industry and similar applications, such as marine engines, landscaping tools, generators and other power tools.
R550 is extremely easy to use, operating at a wide range of speed and energy settings, reducing the need for printer adjustments. Additionally, this formulation produces superior image quality and edge definition for crystal clear fonts and barcodes even at the smallest sizes. R550 carries UL recognition with leading PET material manufacturers, including 3M, Fasson, FLEXcon, and MACtac, making it the smart choice for the most demanding resin applications.
This resin is another high-performance addition to DNP’s industry-leading product line up. With everything from the legendary TR4085plus® to M295HD, our OEM drop-in compatible high-speed wax/resin, to R395 fabric care resin, DNP continues to lead the way in the development of new thermal transfer ribbon formulations.
