HP Latex proprietary technology provides innovation in versatility, flexibility and durability, driving the transformation of the industry and expanding applications to the interior decoration market. Introduced in 2009 as a result of over ten years of research, development, and investment, thousands of HP Latex Ink systems are now employed worldwide and have printed more than 35 million square meters. HP Latex offers the versatility to cover applications including retail and outdoor advertising, event and exhibition graphics, vehicle graphics and interior decoration. The water-based formulation of HP Latex Inks meets high environmental standards that improve the work environment and meet customers' environmental objectives for indoor displays and wall coverings.
HP Latex proprietary technology makes it possible to obtain high quality at production speeds at no extra cost compared to solvent printing technology. Versatility of media, including coated and uncoated substrates deliver odourless prints and do not require ventilation, moving the industry to healthier printing. The smooth, flexible ink layer is ideal for stretching and framing canvases. User replaceable printheads maintain image quality over the life of the printer. Scalable printhead technology enables a range of products with speeds ideal for low to medium volume printing. Delivery times are shortened; prints come out completely dry, and can be laminated immediately. Maintenance is reduced with HP water-based Latex Inks, which do not require daily manual cleaning and printers can be turned off overnight, on weekends, or longer. The HP Latex 300 Series printers are third generation technology.
HP Latex Ink Cartridges feature built-in electronic intelligence that communicates ink colour, remaining ink quantity and other information for the printer. HP Latex Inks are water-based inks that combine the best characteristics of solvent inks and water-based inks. Water give HP Latex inks the high surface tension, low viscosity and energetic vapour bubble that are ideal for use in thermal HP inkjet printheads. Composed of more than 60% water, HP Latex Inks offer important benefits to commercial and industrial production environments - water produces no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), requires no special handling, and is non-toxic, non-flammable and non-combustible. Humectants, wetting agents and additives are used to obtain required performance characteristics for an ink.
The HP Latex 315 Printer features a print zone, located on the printer platen under the scanning carriage. Here heaters evaporate some of the water, allowing the concentrated humectants and wetting agents to soften the surface of uncoated vinyl for better adhesion of the colourant layer. Remaining liquids in the ink film are evaporated by curing zone dryers to produce a completely dry and odourless print that can be immediately handled, stored, shipped or displayed indoors. The HP Optimizer interacts with HP Latex Inks to rapidly immobilize pigments on the surface of the print and achieve high image quality at high productivity.
