Certifications and standards

AXR®EL complies with the most stringent regulations including those specific to the electronics industry.
               

Resistance to soldering

Some of the soldering processes use temperature cycles up to 270°C (518 °F).
AXR®EL is resistant to 300°C (572°F) to guarantee a print that remains perfectly legible.

Resistance to cleaning

AXR®EL is resistant to both solvent and water-based cleaning products. Traceability data is retained throughout the production chain.
 
  • IPA (IsoPropanol)
  • Vigon®
  • Aquanox®
  • Atron®
  • Exxsol®

Compatibility with technical labels

AXR®EL is compatible with the various synthetic substrates used to label electronic products.
  • Polyimide: A technical material suitable for the most extreme environments. Resistant to temperatures up to 250°C/482°F.
  • Polyester (PET): A durable material resistant to solvents and heat (max 160°C/320°F).
  • Acrylate: A material that will not become distorted when exposed to heat.

Printing quality

AXR®EL prints all types of barcode and alphanumeric characters (ANSI grade A) with great precision.
  • Print sharpness: The AXR®EL prints very dense barcodes, including 2D, on small labels.
  • Blackness: With a DOR (optical specular density) of 1.80, the AXR®EL prints data that is perfectly legible even on coloured substrates.

Storage

By respecting the following storage conditions, we recommend to use the ribbons within 12 months after production date.
  • Keep away from light
  • Temperature 5-35°C (40-95°F)
  • Humidity 20-80 %

Packaging

  • Double-wall corrugated box offering good compression resistance.
  • Rolls individually filmed for good protection during transport and storage.
  • Loose fill packaging material to hold the products during transport.
  • Identification and traceability information on the box and on each roll.
  • All packaging items are recyclable and comply with Directive 1994/62/EC.

Product specificity

AXR®EL is a new generation Thermal Transfer ribbon designed to print labels for electronic products with guaranteed long-term traceability.
