Regular cleaning of thermal printer areas can extend the print head life by 80%.
The Thermal printhead cleaning swab uses an Electronic Grade IPA Solution of 99.9% (Isopropyl Alcohol) this is nearly 30% stronger than off the shelf sterile alcohol.
Residue leftover from slower drying cleaning solutions can cause the breakdown of the backing of thermal ribbons. When the backing material breaks down it can cause contamination of the print head and platen rollers.
Leftover adhesive and burned on debris may cause the wrinkling and tearing of thermal ribbons and labels.
All thermal printer manufactures recommend using thermal cleaning products during every change of media.
