Thermal transfer ribbon

Podax® F-T Fischer-Tropsch wax, a kind of methylene polymer, is a refined alkane product synthesized by coal-based Fischer-Tropsch process. With properties of high melting point, lower viscosity and good hardness, it is widely used in many industrial fields.

We provide Podax® FT wax for Thermal transfer ribbons. It can be used as wax base sensor on TTR. Podax® FT wax have narrower melting period and higher hardness after refining. Because of its strong heat sensitivity, Podax® FT wax can precisely sense the heat area and effectively finish the thermal transfer process. Moreover, Podax® FT wax can improve the surface of rub & scratch resistance, gloss and slip.

The following Podax® wax products are recommended for Thermal transfer ribbons.
