Thermal label printer devices, particularly the platen roller and the printhead, require routine cleaning to ensure optimal performance. Adhesive residue from labels, paper flash, and environmental contaminants such as dust, liquids, sugars, oils, and grease degrade label print quality over time. Restore your equipment back to peak performance with KIC’s Waffletechnology® for Thermal Label Printers.
Waffletechnology® is the preferred, routine cleaning product to keep thermal label printer technology working properly. The card’s extra-long profile paired with a powerful ripple scrubbing surface delivers a hassle-free, extensive cleaning in just seconds, and unlike other products, requires no special training to use. Cleaning cards are conveniently packaged in single-use packs, saturated with an eco-friendly cleaning formula, include easy-to-follow instructions and available in an assortment of sizes based on label roll width.
Sizes: 1-1/2″ (40mm), 3-1/8″ (80mm), and 4″ (100mm)

The individually pouched format maintains accurate saturation and works well for field service technicians as well as end users. ClearDisplayTM and IPA are appropriate for sensitive touchscreens, monitors, displays, and external cleaning of hard surfaces. SheerDeviceTM wipes were specifically engineered for heavy-duty grease, dirt, and oily environments – restaurants, fast food establishments, and gas stations find them very effective.
KIC has engineered a number of cleaning agents for cleaning technology. It is important to use the correct cleaning agent for each application. MiracleMagicTM is effective for cleaning the internal components of cash automation technology (ATMs, bill/note validators, bill acceptors, and coin counters) while ClearDisplayTM and IPA are appropriate for external cleaning.
We have a number of useful tools and applicators to make cleaning your devices even more effective. KICPads are excellent for tough, stuck on dirt and debris. KICTeam’s Swisel®, with a soft swab end and a scraping chisel on the other, is wonderful for getting into tight spaces. Our swabs work well for cleaning keypads, keyboards, and other in-between spaces where a gentle scrub is needed.
