Print GHS-standard-compliant labels with this printer

The ColorWorks C831 Wide Label Printer is designed to enable chemical manufacturers and transporters comply with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) labeling standards. The GHS labeling standards focus on conveying health, physical and environmental hazard information using universally understood pictograms, specific signal words and hazard statements. Designed to ensure consistent labeling of chemical products globally, the standards require that many elements of the label be printed in vibrant colors to focus attention on potential hazards. In addition, companies can no longer pre-print labels with a variety of pictograms, and then cross-out symbols that do not apply to the material being shipped. The ColorWorks C831 eliminates the need for color pre-prints and allows chemical companies to produce GHS-compliant labels at a fraction of the cost of four-color thermal transfer or color laser labels. Ideal for high-volume printing of large-format drum and chemical labels, the system produces industrial labels up to 8.5-in. wide at speeds of up to 16.5 pages/min. — Epson America Inc., Long Beach, Calif.
