Primera Technology Inc has announced the availability of highly-durable pigment inks for its popular LX900e colour label printer. Previously, only traditional photo-quality dye-based inks were available.The LX900e’s specially-designed pigment inks, when paired with Primera’s Tuffcoat Extreme Polyjet material, offer stability against harsh conditions including water, chemicals, abrasion and exposure to long periods of UV light.
A significant advantage of the LX900e’s implementation of pigment inks is that the printer can use pigment or dye-based inks by changing the removable print head. Primera’s pigment inks meet the standards of BS5609, one of the most rigid durability qualifications in the world for printed output. Printed labels are exposed to immersion in water, salt spray, abrasion and UV light. Conforming to this standard is required for producing GHS hazardous material labels on a desktop label printer.
