Whether you need waterproof, durable labels or something eye-catching for the retail shelf, the L502 color label printer is our most versatile printer ever. Pigment and dye inks each have their own advantages. Get the best of both worlds with the L502. An all-steel industrial design, improved toolbox functionality, 2x faster printing (compared to L501), and capability to print with either eye catching dye-based or durable pigment inks make the L502 extremely rugged and versatile.
Print Both Pigment and Dye-based Labels
Pigment-based prints are highly resistant to the challenges of moisture, abrasion, sun-fading, and extreme temperature. This makes the L502 perfect for packaging requiring GHS compliance, as well as those with high exposure to moisture, such as beverages and bath products.
The L502’s dye-based prints are high-impact, colorful, and vibrant, making them ideal for prime labeling applications, such as in retail environments.
Enjoy the durability of pigment and the vibrancy of dye inks in the same printer. The L502’s ink interchangeability offers a level of versatility never before experienced in the label printing world.
BS5609 Certified for Durable Labels
The L502 has been tested and certified to produce BS 5609-compliant and GHS (Globally Harmonized System) labels when printing with pigment-based inks, which helps keep chemical manufacturers in compliance with packaging and transportation requirements. This testing evaluates the permanence of the print through abrasion and submersion in salt water for a period of 90 days.
Individual printheads can only be used with one specific ink type. If switching between Dye and Pigment inks, the printhead must also be exchanged for an already primed printhead of the same ink type, or a new printhead that has not yet been primed. Printheads can be re-used if going from one ink type to another. If you plan to use both ink types for different applications in your production, we recommend labeling labeling your printheads to keep them from being mixed up and to reduce waste.
