Introducing Zebra’s Dissolvable Barcode Labels, made particularly for the Quick Serve Restaurants. Dissolvable Labels are made with direct thermal paper with specialty adhesive that dissolves with water. Removing labels from containers before washing can eliminate costly blocked drains and damaged equipment. Advanced Automation is a leader in thermal barcode labeling solutions, and we now offer a solution from our barcoding supplies portfolio, the Zebra 8000D Dissolvable Label. When exposed to running water, this groundbreaking direct thermal label disintegrates into fine paper fibers, as the adhesive dissolves from surfaces. It then washes away smoothly down the drain, leaving absolutely no label residue behind.
