[ Edited ]

Hi everybody,

 

Please could you said how is it possible to improve HP Latex 300 Series Scratch resistance ?

 

- Increase/Decrease optimizer ?

- Increase/Decrease ink quantity ?

- Increase/Decrease fusing temperature ?

- Other ideas ...?

 

 

Thanks,

Hello @lerouxjul

In order to increase scratch resistance you can increase optimizer level but if this is not enough, you can laminate the job to get full protection.

Does increasing optimizer always increase scratch resistance?

 

Actually 15%, I can increase to 25 ?

Hello @lerouxjul

Increasing optimizer level for example up to 25% it will improve the scratch resistance. Depending on what you are expecting, of course. Bear in mind that Increasing optimizer  you will need to increase curing temperature.

I hope it helps

I print on Hexis V200 adhesive vinyl media.

Curing temperature is already at the maximum level : 116°.

 

What is usually the maximum optimizer lever that I can try ?

Hello @lerouxjul

There is no real maximum level. But remember that exidding the level of optimizer the colours will fade dramatically. Are you trying any application? Describe a bit more your concernd and we can give you a better feedback.

I ask these questions only for Hexis V200 adhesive vinyl media. No problem with other medias.

 

Does decreasing ink quantity to 90% will allow to improve Scratch resistance ?

Hello @lerouxjul

I I have passed your question on the engineering team and they would like to know the color that you are printing and what is the cause of the scratching?

Can you also attach a picture, so they can have a better understanding of the issue?
