Good afternoon, I ask them a question. I printed satin (a type of fabric) in Latex 850, everything went perfect but today (3 days after delivery of the work) client called me to tell me that due to rain flags ink was running like watercolor, consultation is to know why this happened and if they have any recommendations for this type of work.
Greetings and from already thank you very much.
I attached two pictures, it's in a can see the hanging flags, waving in perfect condition and in the other the flag after the rain (lead)
I'll try to provide you some explanation for this problem, but if this persists i will recommend you to contact the HP Troubleshooting Team in order to get a better and more accurate answer:
First of all, I will like to remember you that any application printed on textiles with HP Latex for outdoor must be always just for temporary use. The level of resistance to water or smudges being visible will depend on the substrate used.
For outdoor application which are going to suffer sun or rain exposure, there are some materials that will perform better than others, because of its composition. Below I attach you a general list, from the most suitable to the less suitable for outdoor applications:
- Photorealistic Paper
- Blue back Paper
- Tyvek or HDPE
- Self-adhesive vinyl and PVC
Known workarounds for your problem:
I hoep this can help you.
