The combination of environmental benefits with increased productivity is seen as making the HP Designjet L25500 a market leader in coming months. In comparison to conventional solvent printers, HP Latex Inks significantly reduces the time from print to use. This means that operators are not waiting for inks to cure or complete out gassing before they can use the print. The wider environmentally benefits include, water-based HP Latex Inks - no hazard warning labels, no HAPs, no special ventilation required, prints odourless signs and growing range of recyclable HP media available, with HP take-back program. With anticipated UK RRPs of £16,741 for the 42inch and £21,892 for the 60inch the HP Designjet L25500 is well positioned to make a big impact.
