September 5, 2023  By PrintAction Staff

HP debuts the solvent ink, HP 2600, which is said to be suitable for use on untreated polyethylene (PE), PVC, and other types of films such as BOPP. It also has a short dry time. This ink doesn’t have PFAS-based materials.

“With HP 2600 as the latest addition to our solvent ink portfolio, big brand manufacturers can continue to reduce maintenance costs and gain production efficiencies that drive higher uptime on their packaging coding lines” said John Meiling, director of marketing and category management with HP Specialty Printing Solutions. “HP is committed to delivering outstanding print quality throughout the life of the print cartridge, helping brands realize low maintenance coding and marking, while also making progress towards their sustainability goals.”

HP also introduces a thermal inkjet (TIJ) 108-mm bulk printing solution for coding and marking on secondary packaging. This TIJ technology enables direct printing on the outside of packaging boxes, improving recyclability by avoiding glues and other adhesives required with traditional labelling processes.
