HP updates its economical intermediate adhesive vinyl for large-format printing to help 'meet rigorous environmental standards and provide better image quality'.
Their latest innovation in inkjet printing materials optimised for HP Latex printers is HP Permanent Gloss Adhesive Vinyl and HP Permanent Matte Adhesive Vinyl. The updated vinyls have a permanent adhesive to provide 'environmental advantages and are economical'.
The new vinyl is REACH-compliant1, a regulation the European Union adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment. Print service providers have an alternative vinyl that offers environmental advantages at a lower cost, according to the company.
Ideal for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications, from event signage to retail displays, HP Permanent Gloss Adhesive Vinyl and HP Permanent Matte Adhesive Vinyl provide a 'wide colour gamut and excellent ink saturation to deliver vibrant, long-lasting images'. The new vinyls are also highly opaque to provide a 'high-quality finished look'.
The thicker release liner is more stable and is designed to avoid bubbling and wrinkling during production. The increased thickness also makes prints 'easy to handle and install'.
HP Permanent Matte Adhesive Vinyl has a semi-matte finish, and is ideal for environments where glare is an issue. The matte and gloss versions also provide outdoor display permanence of three years un laminated and up to five years laminated.
The new vinyls are available in 30-, 36-, 42-, 54- and 60-inch widths.
