8000D Dissolvable High-Temp
High-temperature direct thermal paper that dissolves from surfaces
Ensuring easy and reliable identification of prepared foods is critical to ensure proper handling, which enables you to meet health department standards and reduces the risk of food-borne illnesses. Preparing hot foods necessitates the use of heat lamps or other heat sources, so using labels that are resistant to high temperatures is important. Proper removal of the labels is also important and challenging. Label debris can clog drains and make dishwashers unusable, wreaking havoc on your operations, resulting in costly service calls. Zebra’s 8000D Dissolvable High-Temp label was designed with these things in mind. It is a direct thermal label, requiring no ribbon. It features a specialty acrylic adhesive that loses its structure, removing cleanly from the surface, and a facestock that disperses into tiny fibers, when subjected to running water. It is resistant to temperatures up to 140°F, so it will remain readable when exposed to heat lamps.
The 8000D Dissolvable High-Temp Label has been designed to disperse into small paper fibers, while the adhesive dissolves away from most surfaces when subjected to running water, washing cleanly down the drain and leaving no trace of the label.* Enables you to easily comply with health department requirements that labels must be fully removed from containers to inhibit bacterial growth.
This label is resistant to temperatures up to 140°F. When the label is applied to a food container placed under a heat lamp, the label will not discolor and the print will remain readable, ensuring staff has clear visibility to critical information such as expiration dates of food.
Zebra’s 8000D Dissolvable label is an innovative direct thermal material that does not require the use of a ribbon to create an image. This means associates can easily print labels as they do not need to install a ribbon to print a durable image, and no need to inventory two supplies to create labels.
Printing supplies can impact everything from printhead lifespan to operational efficiency. That’s why we design, produce and rigorously pre-test our own line of thermal printing supplies to ensure consistent, optimized performance. We utilize an ISO 9001 certified, 23-point quality inspection to ensure consistent quality. No matter when you order your labels, you can count on the same great performance.
Reliably identify prepared foods with the easily removable 8000D Dissolvable High-Temp label.
