Print Confident. Print Quality. Print Zebra.

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 inspection process and consistent materials to ensure reliable performance from order-to-order. No matter when you order your labels, you can count on the same consistent performance.

Unparelled smear and scratch, moderate chemical and high-heat resistant

Z-Ultimate 2000T labels when paired with Zebra’s 6200, 5100 or 5095 ribbons offer excellent print durability to smearing and scratching, ensuring your assets remain identifiable throughout their useful life. The label will remain readable and intact when subjected to moderate chemicals, such as alcohol, ammonia, IPA and bleach, making it the perfect choice for identifying assets that will require cleaning and disinfecting with chemicals, such as medical devices and food preparation equipment. Once applied, this label can withstand temperatures up to 302° F/150° C, making it a reliable choice to identify products which require a high-heat processing during manufacturing and those that will be subjected to heat when in use, such as some food preparation equipment.

Z-Ultimate 2000T labels combined with Zebra’s 5100 and 5095 have been fully tested and certified by UL to the UL 969 standard. In addition, Zebra supplies manufacturing plants are authorized to pre-print the UL mark.
