Toshiba - Toshiba AS3 Resin

Toshiba AS3 Resin


The AS3 is a pure resin ribbon developed for printing wash care labels in the textile industry. Best suited to polysatins and nylons the printed image offers excellent resistance to dry cleaning, home and industry washing, bleach and ironing.

The AS3's outstanding back coating prevents static build-up and clogging, providing the very best in printhead protection.

Using the AS3 in home laundry tests, the print was legible after several dozen washes at 40° C, 60° C and 90° C. In industrial laundry tests the print was legible after several washes with bleach at 60° C. For dry cleaning tests the AS3 has excellent resistance to perchloroehtylene and good heat resistance when ironing up to 200° C.
