Thermal Dye Transfer System
Thermal dye transfer system uses its own dedicated ink ribbon and receiver paper.
The ink ribbon is coated with three basic color dye ink (yellow, magenta & cyan) on a thin polyester film.
Along with this ink ribbon, another dedicated resin-coated receiver paper is needed for fixing the transferred dye.
Thermal dye transfer system forms the image by transferring the dye ink (yellow, magenta & cyan) on to the paper in proportion to the heat volume released from the print head.
