“I sell to a large company that buys a lot of [thermal transfer] paper labels and ribbon to print them. They were buying from one of the lower cost ribbon suppliers and started having issues. They came to me, [and] I sent them TR4085plus to test. They loved it. They now buy about 30 boxes at a time about four times per year. TR4085plus helped me win the business and helped the customer print crisp, readable codes!”

A floodcoat is a liquid coating that covers the entire surface of a substrate for protection or decoration. Floodcoat chemistry varies from color to color, which can make for difficult ink compatibility. TR4085plus is engineered with a unique blend of resins for superior compatibility when surface treatments vary.

Polyethylene (PE) is a strong, durable material that provides resistance to water and chemicals. It is a popular choice for environmentally-friendly, mono-material applications as it can be easily recycled with a PE container. Engineered with precise melt points, TR4085plus transfers quickly and completely, filling peaks and valleys even on rough surfaces like DuPont™ Tyvek®.

Polypropylene (PP) provides a tear-proof, waterproof solution that is resistant to fading and discoloration. It is commonly used for retail and health & beauty packaging, as well as pharmaceutical applications like test tubes that must be stored in conditions where a paper would fade or become damaged by moisture. TR4085plus is a reliable solution even when faced with various surface treatments applied to biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP).


Synthetic Paper

Synthetics like Kimdura® were developed to have paper-like qualities and be receptive to commercial printing inks while providing durability and weatherability that a paper cannot. TR4085plus provides a total solution for applications like airline baggage tags, retail security labeling, and even health & beauty products.
