Zebra Label Printers & Thermalock 4100D Labels

Packaging is an essential aspect of any product, and labeling is an important component of that packaging. Today, we’ll be discussing the new Zebra Thermalock 4100D direct thermal labels for rugged applications. These labels possess advanced features to meet industry challenges and address the need for high-quality labeling. As a professional, it is crucial to be aware of the latest technological advancements in the industry. There has been a void in the applications which utilize mobile printers because of the discontinuation of the Thermalock 4000D direct thermal labels. Warehouse applications using mobile printers requiring BOPP Direct Thermal label material had nowhere to turn, until now. Not using a mobile printer, this label material will work in all industrial printers as well. This blog post is aimed at packaging engineers, product managers, sourcing managers, and purchasing agents looking to solve a unique labeling challenge.

“When you need a direct thermal label material that will withstand the most demanding environments, Zebra’s Thermalock 4100D is the right choice.  This direct thermal label can handle it all from extreme heat and cold, direct sunlight, rain, snow and exposure to a wide range of chemicals for up to  12 months outdoors.”
