L901 Plus with Watershield™ Water-Resistant Inks

L901 Plus with Watershield water-resistant inks

The Plus model offers increased water and moisture resistance1.

Watershield-printed labels are significantly more resistant to the effects of prolonged moisture exposure than conventional dye-based inkjet labels. This makes the L901 Plus perfect for applications such as chilled beverages, foods, chemical or pharmaceutical products.

This new technology also produces deeper blacks, uses more responsibly-sourced inks2, and helps to prolong the life of the printhead3.

1 Water resistance can be media-dependent. Always test your printed label to be sure it meets your requirements.
2 Watershield™ inks do not contain chemicals that are considered to be harmful to humans or the environment.
3 Memjet tested ejection life internally and found an average above 2X printhead life. Actual results may vary due to factors such as environment and frequency of use.

  • Inline & high-volume printing
  • Fast print speeds (≤ 12 IPS)
  • Super low ink costs
  • Water-resistant inks available
