Businesses that must comply with GHS labeling regulations often use third party providers to print GHS labels, which must meet rigorous BS5609 standards from longevity — including when the item is submerged in seawater. However, do-it-yourself GBS BS5609 labeling is possible in house when you have a GHS BS5609-certified colour label printer such as the Primera LX2000 and corresponding GHS BS5609-certified LX2000 chemical labels.
The Primera LX2000 colour GHS label printer prints durable 8-inch industrial and chemical labels at a speed of up to 6 inches per second. Like other Primera Technology label printers, the LX2000 has an astounding print resolution of up to 4800 dpi, so you can rest assured that your labels will be crisp and high quality. Whether printing chemical drum labels, product labels, event tickets, or barcodes, you can include graphics, text, pictograms, warning statements, and barcodes with confidence.
The Primera LX2000 uses pigment-based inks, which are much more durable than the more vivid dye-based inks used in traditional inkjet printers. Ink management is straight forward as the LX2000 uses four individual ink cartridges (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black). Since you only need to replace colours when they run low, less ink is wasted. Simply replace the low ink cartridge and continue printing.
Pigment inks are just part of the larger GHS labeling requirements. Another factor has to do with the label materials and adhesives used. We have GHS chemical labels certified for use with the Primera LX2000 as well as a large selection of LX2000 labels for printing industrial labels, shipping labels, carton labels, product labels, office labels, tags, tickets, and more.
Optimedia Labs sells the Primera LX2000 label printer, Primera LX2000 ink cartridges, and blank LX2000 labels for the Primera LX2000 online. Check out our pricing and find out just how easy it is to get started printing your own GHS BS5609-compliant labels in house.
