HP FB225 White Ink from Hewlett-Packard Co.
Designed to work with HP FB225 process color Scitex inks and HP Scitex FB7500 and FB7600 Industrial Presses, new HP FB225 White Scitex Ink is ideal for a wide range of applications, including backlit signage, window displays and short-run corrugated packaging. The white ink integrates seamlessly with the full set of process colors to produce durable, rich, saturated colour on clear or coloured materials. The inks also help customers reduce labour and prepress costs compared to analogue solutions, and improve efficiency with precise white-to-CMYK registration.
With the HP Scitex FB7500/FB7600 White Ink Kit, the more than 100 existing HP Scitex FB7500 and FB7600 Industrial Press customers can expand their offerings and create business opportunities by offering new, high-value white ink applications. These presses include extra printhead beams, which allow the white ink kit to be added without sacrificing process colours or image quality.
"Since installing the HP Scitex FB7500/FB7600 White Ink Kit, we have printed a wide range of unique, high-value applications for our customers, ranging from clear self-adhesive vinyl with white underprinting for vehicle graphics to white overprinting for large-format window stickers to blockout prints for double-sided glass applications," said Karlheinz Kaiser, chief executive officer and co-owner, Christinger Partner AG. "With the kit, we can produce traditional screen printing applications with our digital technology easier, with better quality and the fastest possible turnaround times."
HP FB225 White Scitex Ink and the HP Scitex FB7500/FB7600 White Ink Kit are expected to be available in May.
