HP commends Latex Inks Jan 28, 2011 14:23 by Chris Rails
Standard HP printer ink might not be ideal for printing and graphics companies that are keen to help the environment.
Fortunately, the company is aware of this and has been working on products for customers who keep green issues firmly in mind.
HP's water-based HP Latex Inks are one good example, as they have been designed to have minimal environmental impact.
The company noted that they don't contain any dangerous air pollutants and are non-combustible and non-flammable.
Therefore, firms that use HP Latex Inks don't need to have hazard warning labels around their premises or extra ventilation equipment.
HP said this type of ink produces "odourless prints that allow placement in point-of-purchase environments where odour is a concern."
The company, which was recently honoured by the Technology Services Industry Association, added that printers which use Latex Inks are also designed to be eco-friendly.
Indeed, it said they comply with "strict energy-efficiency guidelines".
