AFINIA L502 Color Printer - Dye
Afinia L502 Colour Label Printer with Dye Inks
If you're in the market for a high-quality colour label printer that uses dye inks, look no further than the Afinia L502. This 8.5-inch colour label printer is perfect for businesses that need to produce between 2,500 and 20,000 high-resolution colour labels per month. Not only does the L502 print beautiful labels with stunning colors, it has an affordable price point and medium per-label ink costs.
This Afinia L502 model comes with a starter set of CMYK dye inks. Most of this ink will be used to prime the printhead the first time, so we recommend ordering a second set of dye inks at the time of purchase.
DuraPrime Duo Ink Technology
The Afinia L502 features Afinia's DuraPrime Duo Ink Technology, which means it is compatible (and fully interchangeable) with both dye and pigment-based inks. To switch to pigment inks, you will need to purchase the pigment printhead and a set of pigment CMYK inks. Or if you intend to start off using pigment inks, purchase the Afinia L502 with pigment inks.
When to Use Dye or Pigment Inks with the Afinia L502
The Afinia L502 with dye inks is an excellent choice for printing labels with vivid colours such as product labels, coffee and tea labels, candy labels, candle labels, jar labels, and more. The dye inks, however, aren't as durable as pigment inks and may not be suitable for some applications such as products likely to be exposed to water, oils, or chemicals.
The Afinia L502 with pigment inks is a great choice for applications that require greater durability such as labels that will be exposed to water, oils, heavy handling, or chemicals. The pigment inks are also resistant to abrasions and fading over time. If you need to print GHS BS5609 labels, the L502 with pigment is your best bet.
