Application options using Latex Inks in our printing systems include: outdoor signage and advertising, retail – point of purchase displays, vinyl banners for exhibitions and events, vehicle graphics and and indoor wall and floor decor. The broad range of prints that can be produced using this nine foot latex printer is truly stunning.
Here are some reasons to select latex printing over others.
Instant Dry, Same Day delivery
Turnaround time to deliver an order is critical. Many times products produced with other inks, and before applying the lamination must be ‘degassed’ for 24-48 hours to avoid the appearance of bubbles and other artifacts.
Alternatively, latex inks are ready to finish and ship as soon as they come out of the printer as there are no solvents to evaporate.
More Applications, High Image Quality and Enhanced Durability
When comparing eco-solvent and latex print consider the media breadth and application coverage. This is one of the most important benefits of latex compared to eco-solvent, due to the huge range of flexible materials, coated and uncoated, that we print with latex inks. It’s not only about doing vinyl banners, but expanding to films, papers, textiles, canvas, wall paper and others.
Print durability is also a major difference.
Better for Customers, Operators and the Environment
Eco-solvent inks are by definition made of a solvent vehicle, which can be hazardous, and need to be evaporated and carefully controlled. While we have seen an improvement in the smell of eco-solvent inks, that doesn’t mean they are safer. They still carry the ‘dangerous goods’ logos in the cartridge regulations.
No cost trade-offs
Although most people care about environmental sustainability, they are not as willing to pay more for a sustainable print. With our latex printing system we make sure that prints are priced comparable or even less than other systems.
