Materials Used When printing bar codes and signboard in a thermal transfer printing format. Thermal transfer ink ribbons are manufacured using ink made of carbon and colored pigments for Printing Which are mixed With Wax and then attached at a thickness of several microns to the surface of a film which acts as the base material.When heat is transferred to a flim the thermal head,only the portion melts and attached to the paper.
