Specially coated for trouble-free printing

Z-Select 2000D labels feature a protective topcoat for ultra-smooth printing that preserves the printhead of your printer. You also get excellent print quality and sharp definition. And the coating offers enhanced resistance to moisture, oils and other environmental factors to increase the durability of your labels.

Direct Thermal Material

Z-Select 2000D is a direct thermal material, meaning no ribbon is required for printing and so only one stock item is required.

Optimized for use with food products and in cold environments

With its all-temperature permanent rubber adhesive, these labels can be securely applied in temperatures as low as 0° C and will remain adhered in temperatures up from -40°C up to 50°C, making them perfect for use on assets in cold environments. The adhesive complies with European food regulation EC 1935/20004, EU 10/2011 and BfR Recommendation XXI for direct contact with dry and moist non-fatty foodstuffs. It also meets FDA 175.105 for direct contact with dry foodstuffs.
