Introduction to labelling technology
Zebra manufactures labels, receipts, tags and wristbands for a wide variety of
applications. They are designed to deliver the very best results from Zebra printers.
Top-coating
Facestock
Pressure-sensitive adhesive
Release liner
Silicone
Labels
Adhesive
Tags/tickets
Thermal transfer ribbons
Self-adhesive labels can be paper or synthetic, direct thermal
or thermal transfer, and are supplied with either a permanent or
removable adhesive. Labels have three main layers: facestock
(with or without top-coating), adhesive and liner.
Different adhesives are available according to the label’s end use.
Tags and tickets are non-adhesive products, available in paper
and synthetic and sometimes made with punch holes to be tied
or stapled to products for identification.
Receipts
Ribbons are used to print onto thermal transfer products. The
ribbon consists of three layers: the carrier film, the ink layer and
the backcoating. It prints by transferring ink from the carrier film
onto the label using heat generated when the printhead passes
over it. Thermal transfer ribbons come in three main types: wax,
wax/resin and resin.
Zebra receipt papers are direct thermal papers, thinner than
traditional tags. Zebra has various products between 60 and 110
microns thick for use in our mobile, desktop and kiosk printers.
Print technology
Facestock
Labels are made of paper or synthetic material, with or without
a top-coating. Top-coatings can be added to allow or enhance
printability or to give protection against environmental influences
such as moisture, chemicals or abrasion.
• Permanent adhesive
Cannot be removed without ripping the facestock or leaving
residue on the labelled surface
• Removable adhesive
Can easily be peeled away without damaging the label or the
labelled surface
• Special-purpose adhesive
e.g. adhesives which can resist freezer temperatures or offer
extra high adhesion to certain surfaces.
Release liner
The liner is the siliconised carrier from which the labels are
peeled or dispensed. Liners are usually yellow or white in colour
and tend to be paper-based.

Wristbands
Thermally printed wristbands are used in healthcare and leisure
applications for patient identification, patron access control and
staff identification.
Direct thermal (D) and Thermal transfer (T) are two different
printing technologies having different features and benefits,
summarised below:
Direct thermal
Thermal transfer
Indoor use only
Indoor or outdoor usage
Very short lifespan
Medium- to long-term lifespan
Simple for operator
(one supply item only)
Specialist applications requiring
specific print features, chemicalresistance or heat-resistance
Standard images
and bar-codes
High-quality durable images and
bar-codes

Zebra product families
Genuine Zebra ribbons
Genuine Zebra labels are classified into product
families, making them easy to specify and sell.
Ribbon
Resin
Used together, Zebra ribbons and labels provide optimal
performance with Zebra printers and maximise the life of
the printhead. We have the right thermal transfer ribbon for
your customer’s application, available in wax, resin or
wax/resin formulations.
For the ultimate resistance to chemicals and heat, Zebra resin
ribbons handle the harshest environments.
• It’s easy to identify material types
• There’s clarity of material market positioning
• Paper, synthetic and speciality products fall into several product families

Specification sheets are available for all label materials and
ribbon products. We also supply RoHS compliance statements
and Material Safety Datasheets.

Key for supplies selector guide:
All information in the tables relates to blank media without pre-printed inks. Pre-printed labels (tinted, logo-printed, etc.) have different properties from plain labels and will give different print results. Furthermore, preprinted labels will not resist abrasion, chemicals or environmental conditions in the same way as blank labels. Testing is always recommended before purchase. Zebra expects, but does not warrant, that printed images
on those supplies products where an archive life is listed under key features can be expected to last as stated, when stored according to specific archive conditions. Please refer to www.accesszebra.com for further
information. Zebra’s standard Terms and Conditions of Sale apply for all sales of Zebra products.
