IIMAK Releases NETFlex+ a New Near-Edge Wax-Resin Thermal Transfer Ribbon for Flexible Packaging Applications

AMHERST,NY  November 19, 2014 – International Imaging Materials, Inc. (IIMAK), a global leader in the manufacture and development of printing and coding consumable supplies, has announced the release of NETFlex+, a new near-edge wax-resin ribbon for Thermal Transfer Overprinting.  This next generation ribbon has been developed to be an OEM-compatible, drop in replacement for the most common printers in the market including Videojet® and Markem®.  NETFlex+ produces dark, crisp prints at speeds up to 1000mm/sec (40ips) and has been engineered with a thin coating, allowing it to match most OEM lengths. 

Testing confirms NETFlex+ performs well at ambient and cold temperatures and prints on a variety of substrates, from rough to smooth stock.  Target applications include snack foods, fresh cut produce, fractional coffee packs and meat packaging, including chub packs, amongst others.

NETFlex+ is manufactured in the USA at IIMAK’s Amherst, NY plant.  It is sold worldwide through distribution and is available in the most common configurations. For more information, visit: www.iimak.com/netflexplus.
