Zebra's direct thermal labels are available in paper or synthetic formats. Paper offers an inexpensive way to print in a variety of general-purpose applications, while synthetic offers more durable, long-lasting results with resistance to abrasion, moisture, and chemicals.
Direct thermal technology does not require a ribbon. Instead, a chemically coated heat-sensitive material produces images as heat is applied to the surface. Ideal for indoor applications where temperatures will not exceed high levels.
