Thermal Transfer Films

Tough environments

Thermal transfer is a popular print process particularly used for the printing of identification labels.  It is the most widely used printing process in the world for the printing of high-quality barcodes.

Innovia’s Rayoface™ VTT, a white high yield BOPP film, is suitable for use on marine drums and has been tested internally to ensure compatibility with the BS5609 standard, which is the benchmark for marine drum labelling. It has a proprietary matt paper like surface which ensures reliable barcode readability.

The film has a dedicated print receptive top coating which can be printed using thermal transfer, dot matrix and ink jet marking. The films is UV stabilised to withstand extended outdoor exposure, remaining intact after exposure to sunlight and salt spray.

The ‘TT’ topcoat is also designed to improve the smudge and scratch resistance of bar codes and text printed with wax/resin and wax ribbons, potentially reducing the total costs of the finished label.
