Resin thermal ribbons are formulated to print onto plastic labels such as polyester, polypropylene and vinyl.

The "ink" is designed to slightly dissolve into or adhere to the plastic surface of the blank thermal label and becomes extremely durable, depending on the plastic material and ribbon make used. Most thermal printer manufacturers offer ribbon/label combinations which are known to work well together, which is particularly important as some combinations produce no image at all.

Plastic labels with resin ribbons will survive outside in full sunlight, can stand immersion in water and may be resistant to chemicals and oils dependent on type. Often used in Automotive and Aircraft parts manufacture, any items stored outside and essential for the labelling of hazardous chemicals which must remain identifiable, for example, after being submerged in sea water for extended periods.

Resin thermal ribbons contain the highest percentage of resin materials. Most Resin ribbons are made up of two are more layers. Thermal printing with resin ribbons is done at high energy levels or heat settings as resins have a high melting point. Low print speeds can be achieved due to the high energy levels required for printing. But the resulting printing images bear a very high resistance to chemicals, heat, abrasion resistance and other environmental conditions.

Resin Ribbons are best suited for use with textile apparel or garment labels like (taffeta / satin), high gloss coated materials like polyesters, polyolefins, destructible vinyl, warranty void labels, labels which are to be exposed to harsh environments like chemical drum labels, medical and pharmaceutical labeling, as well as industrial and automotive applications.

Resin ribbons are the most expensive for thermal printers.
