Toshiba SG2 Thermal Ribbon (Wax-Resin)

One of our most popular consumable products, the SG2 wax-resin grade ribbon is a durable yet flexible thermal ribbon designed for difficult media types.



The SG2 is one of our biggest seller for the B-EX range of printers due to its consistency and versatility.

This wax-resin grade quality consists of a special ink formulation that offers crisp, printed images and barcodes on to a very wide range of receiving materials, making it the ideal choice for multi label applications.

Whether you are printing on to coated and uncoated papers and tags — or on to Tyvek® and Valeron® — you are assured that a quality printed image will be produced, time after time. This is critical when producing large quantities of barcodes that need to be successfully scanned, and which could well lead to rejection or return of products if not legible!

The SG2 is a highly durable product with excellent smudge resistance and scratch resistance — gaining a grade A from the American National Standard Institute (ANSI).
