Cameleon XP-H500B is a thermal transfer printer. Thermal transfer printing is a digital printing method in which material is applied to paper by melting a coating of ribbon so that it stays glued to the material on which the print is applied. So compare to direct thermal printing thermal transfer printed material last longer and more sharper as well. Mostly these printed stickers are water-proof and dust-proof.
Thermal transfer is preferred over direct thermal printing on surfaces that are heat sensitive or when higher durability of printed matter (especially against heat) is desired.
Thermal Transfer is a popular print process particularly used for the printing of identification labels. It is the most widely used printing process in the world for the printing of high quality barcodes. Printers like label makers can laminate the print for added durability.
