Watershield™ Technology

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 perfect for applications such as chilled beverages, foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products. This new technology also produces deeper and more neutral blacks.

  • 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.

1  Water resistance can be media-dependent. Always test your printed label to be sure it meets your requirements.
