Abstract

Resisting ribbon printing is a technology which uses a thin resistive layer to produce heat to melt an adjacent transfer layer onto paper to produce print. Print is obtained by placing electrodes in contact with the resistive layer, and current is then passed through the resistive layer which generates sufficient heat to melt and transfer the ink layer to paper. We have found a resin which produces good, rub-resistant print on paper which also has the advantage of easy release from the resistive layer. The resin is LEWISOL 821*. It is a high acid number rosin-derived thermoplastic. * Trademark of Hercules Corporation.
