THE BENEFITS OF LATEX PRINTING
As well as the wide range of uses latex printing offers, there are many benefits as to why it has become such a popular method of printing for Imaginators as the print provider and you our client.
NO HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS
In the past, for similar application, we would have used solvent-based inks which contained compounds that were harmful to people and the environment. Latex ink was introduced as an alternative to solvent with latex inks being made up of around 70% water.
Reducing the environmental and health concerns of printing means the finished product can be displayed anywhere, including healthcare and office environments.
DURABLE AND RESISTANT
Latex ink does have different life spans dependant on the material and whether it is located indoors or outdoors. However, latex printing is scratch and abrasion resistant, as well as water and chemical resistant to different levels.
HIGH QUALITY PRINT AT HIGH SPEEDS
Printing vibrant colours and clear graphics, latex printing offers not only incredible quality but also high-speed prints that are ready in an instant. Unlike traditional solvent printing, latex inks require no dry time.
Latex printing doesn’t require lamination for short term use, saving us time and you money.
Latex printing has been found to be a great solution for its quality, durability and ease of use. Even though it is one of the newest ink technologies available, all of the limitations such as high-temperature drying and poor scratch-resistance have been overcome.
If you would like to achieve the best possible printing results whilst saving money, protecting the environment and delivering quality products, you should consider latex printing.
