Formulations of polyurethane acrylates, polyepoxy acrylates, and silicon-modified polyurethane acrylates which can be cured by electron beam at fast rates. The resistive layers formed from these E-beam curable formulations and coated on a 0.2-mil aluminized poly(ethylene terephthalate) in a 4-layer ribbon configuration demonstrated good strength adhesion and gave high quality prints at low currents and power when used in resistive ribbon thermal transfer printing.
