We have an idea for you to try. Since nothing like your scenario is tested for in our test labs, we suggest that you locate a Xerox retailer in your local area and take your labels over to them and see if they have any solid ink machines that they can demo for you. If they do, ask them to print a couple of your labels for you and then see if you experience the same problem with the solid ink too. I'm sorry that I don't have any more ideas for you!
I am not to sure how Xerox can anwser on that question, regarding other suplier products.
According to what I understood you are debating with the gap of quality or a lack on the features on that paper.
I tell you what media should be used on that printer... or what we recommend nevertheless I am not sure this will solve your problem.
I suppose that you would have to make sure this paper does what it says independent if its printed on Xerox device or not. Then try to understand what settings best ajust to print on this specific paper and see if those requirements are supported by this product or not..
I personally do not have in-depth knowledge of toner/ink but I have forwarded your question to some people who might. The closest toner/ink that I can think of that may work better for you, is any Xerox product that uses solid ink which is a wax based ink. Some of the newest Xerox Phaser products use this solid ink. I'll be sure to post back when I get a response from our engineers.
I need to print so that customers who may spill essential oils, perfumes, oils or water on the labels don't ruin the labels. I have purchased waterproof labels and print them on my 6180DN PS with the label setting. even after spraying them with Krylon acrylic coating, a drop of essential oil, which is a solvent, will cause all the ink to smear. The label supplier said to contact Xerox for further instructions.
