HP LX610 Latex Scitex Inks Offer Quality, Durability
Capable of producing eye-catching images with rich blacks and glossy results on banners and self-adhesive vinyl, the new HP LX610 Latex Scitex Inks continue to set the standard for high-quality sign and display output. The inks produce prints with display permanence and scratch, smudge and water resistance comparable to low-solvent inks. Plus, the new formulation offers improved water resistance on fabrics, further expanding high-value soft signage application capabilities.
“The advantage of being able to print on textiles with the HP LX610 Latex Scitex Inks is that, unlike dye sublimation, it’s just print and go,” said León Gateño, owner, Target Graphics, a Mexico City-based print service provider. “The upgrade process was very easy and we were printing right after the HP technician finished.”
Customers with HP Scitex LX600 or LX800 Printers can benefit from the new inks – as well as double-sided printing capabilities for blockout banners – by purchasing the HP Scitex LX610 Inks Upgrade Kit.
The HP Scitex LX610 Inks Upgrade Kit is available now and can be installed by an HP technician in one day.
