We normally associate latex printers and inks with HP, since they were the first ones in the latex game. Latex inks are water-based, and don’t give off much in the way of harmful vapours (like solvent inks), nor do they require ultraviolet light exposure to dry (like UV inks). Still, advances in the ink technology, and the addition of an optimizing fluid, have helped lower the temperature at which the inks cure, improving the equipment’s energy footprint. Top applications for latex printing are banners, soft signage, vehicle graphics, and other indoor and outdoor applications. HP in particular has been seeing substantial growth in interior décor, from wallpaper and other printed wall coverings, to window treatments, to flooring, to upholstery.
