Direct Thermal Labels (DTL)
Allmarks International (Pvt) Ltd Direct Thermal Labels all have a heat sensitive coating on the face stock which enables these products to be imaged with a barcode printer and does not require a ribbon. Our product offering includes various face stocks from paper to BOPP film. These products cover a wide range of applications and can be manufactured with a multitude of adhesives to meet our customers’ requirements. Non Top Coated Paper – Our Economy Paper labels utilize a paper base stock to which a thermal coating has been applied. Top Coated Paper – Our Premium Paper labels are smooth, bright, white paper with a high sensitivity thermal coating. Direct Thermal BOPP Film – A durable, high sensitivity, 3mm direct thermal polypropylene film (BOPP) for use with high speed thermal printers.
Commonly used for shipping labels, receipts, name tags, picking and event tickets, direct thermal labels do not require ink, toner or a transfer ribbon. Eliminating the ribbon makes for easier use and a lower cost per label, but not without sacrificing durability. Direct thermal labels are not recommended for demanding condition, such as outdoors.
