With the C6000 series you are able to print GHS-compliant labels. In addition, water-resistant, chemical-resistant, smudge-proof labels can be printed.
For water-resistant printing according to BS5609, it is essential to use a suitable label material. We will of course be happy to advise you on this and supply you with the optimal material for your application.
Two different black inks are available for the printers of the C6000 series. The black ink, which was available from the start, is ideal for glossy materials.
The new available black ink is optimized for use with matte materials and therefore bears the suffix "(mk)". It ensures a more matte black.

With the firmware version delivered from November 2020, you can select which ink will be used for printing. This setting cannot be reversed afterwards.
The newly available printer versions with the additional designation "(mk)" differ from the models without this additional designation only in the black ink used. Apart from that they are identical.
