What is Latex Printing?
The latex works as a carrier for color pigments, and heat is applied immediately to reduce drying time. The process from beginning to end is much quicker than other methods and helps produce a superior product. Many print products are available for same-day delivery, unlike products that use solvent-based ink printing, which need 24 hours to dry before any cutting or post-printing duties can begin.
Though the process is simple, special printers are necessary to run HP Latex Inks.
Healthy and Eco-Friendly
That’s why our latex printing is excellent for senior living environments, eco-friendly hotels, healthy homes, hospitals, or just when you want to go green—especially when combined with eco-friendly canvases, wallcoverings, and so on.
We need to embrace these types of print technologies now more than ever. Even something as simple as printing can have an enormous effect on human life and the planet if it’s not kept under control.
HP Latex Printing vs. Eco-Solvent
Even eco-solvents are harmful to the environment and produce a health-risk without proper control. Ether-based inks are notorious for posing several threats to professionals and consumers. When eco-solvents are used, VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), known to cause cancer, are released during the printing process. Therefore, solvent printers require proper ventilation. And because they are hazardous material, proper disposal is critical.
To say that latex inks do not produce VOCs would be inaccurate. However, the amount of VOCs they release is meager, and they do not require ventilation to reach occupational exposure limits. Furthermore, latex inks do not produce those annoying odors that solvents do.
High Image Quality and Durability
Versatility for Both Outdoor and Indoor Projects
Below are a few examples of latex printing applications:
- Trade show signage
- Backlit graphics
- Wallpaper substrates and wall murals
- Gallery wrapped canvases
- Perforated vinyl
- Opaque vinyl
- Heavy poster paper
- Vehicle graphics
Benefits with No Cost Difference
Put Latex Printing to Work for You
Latex printing is a superior method that produces cost-effective, incredibly durable, high-resolution prints or popular outdoor and indoor projects while maintaining a low environmental impact.
Additionally, production times are dramatically decreased, and during most printing projects, less material is consumed. This helps off-set costs while keeping our environment clean. Consider what that means for you and your business, and you’ll see how the benefits of Colorchrome’s latex printing go far beyond just high-quality images.
