Comparing Latex Printing Vs Eco-solvent Printing
The involved processes: In the latex inks, the latex contains the ink pigments, and hence the name. The curing process of the printers enables the ink to dry quickly, hence making it ready to use as soon as it comes off the press. On the other hand, eco-solvent printing may take considerable time as the printed medium undergoes de-gassing. This method cleanses the toxic fumes and then allows the ink to dry. After this, you would be able to laminate the printed medium to safeguard the surface. The process is long and can take up to around four days.
Delivery: The latex inks are scratch resistant and durable which means that there’s no need of any lamination. If you are in the printing business, you can guarantee ‘same day delivery’ to the customers, which sure is an appreciable attraction for a local business. Due to some detailed process, the print delivery takes some time in case of eco-solvent printing.
Canvas printing: In the world of commercial art, printing directly onto the canvas is widely popular. Latex printing eliminates the requirement to pre-seal the canvas and one can directly print on the canvas. The range of material appropriate for latex printing includes plastics, paper, textiles, wallpaper, vinyl, canvas and film. However, when it comes to eco-solvent printing, pre-sealing is a necessity and in its absence, ink would soak into the canvas. This is unquestionably a rather costly and time-consuming process.
Maintenance: The latex printers are not just user friendly but are also very easy to maintain which in turn reduces downtime. Unlike the eco-solvent printers, the latex printers usually have an automatic and inbuilt self-cleaning system, which requires occasional change of the cartridge. The eco-solvent printers have weekly or monthly cleaning schedule, which isn’t automatic. This leads to the considerable consumption of labor and time.
Environment friendly: The latex printers use safe ink, which avoids hazardous fumes and odors. This means that you don’t require a dedicated space for the printer. Instead, you can easily use the printed items in sensitive environments including dentists, hospitals, schools and nurseries. The same is not the case with eco-solvent inks.
