Enhanced durability for water-exposed labels
Watershield-printed labels are significantly more resistant to the effects of prolonged moisture exposure than conventional dye-based inkjet labels1. This makes the L801 Plus is perfect for applications such as chilled beverages, foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products. This new technology also produces deeper and truer blacks, uses more responsibly-sourced inks, and helps to prolong the life of the printhead2.
Ideal for the top growing food and beverage categories3
Frozen Meats And Seafood
Available in Aﬁnia Label Printers
Watershield Technology is available in the L801 Plus and L901 Plus Color Label Printers
Enhanced Water Resistance
Watershield-printed labels are much better
at resisting the effects of moisture than those
printed using traditional inkjet.
More Neutral Black Chroma
Blacks and grays are more neutral in color, providing truer tones with less color tinting.
Safer Chemical Compositions
Watershield inks carry much less severe
chemical warnings than traditional inkjet,
UV, solvent, or liquid toner inks.
These inks are free from phthalate esters, benzophenone, bisphenol-A (BPA), HAPs – Hazardous Air Pollutants, SVHCs, heavy metals, and aromatic amines.
2 Memjet tested ejection life internally. K and C colors far exceeded 2X performance, while M and Y met 1.9X performance (average above 2X printhead life). Actual results will vary due to factors such as environment and frequency of use.
