    Hello All,

    I have an HP L560 latex machine and I am having trouble with the curing in small spots on the Econovue 70/30 Window Perf. It looks like it is happening more on darker areas. So i adjusted the ink density from printing at 100% to 80% and have also tried raising the temp as well but still no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or has anyone had any successful fixes?

    Thank you

    have you tried changing the interpass delay so it sits in the heat longer? You can do that via adjustments after you've started printing.

    with latex printers it needs to cook the ink. if it doesnt get cooked. it will never dry.
    but the bigger question. is there something on the perf not allowing the ink to stick
    the ink wont stick to the release liner so it will always wipe off those areas.

    Have you tried the perf from Bigfish? Lol, oh wait. I have a profile that might help it run better, but in the future I can provide you with a better product at a better price point also.

    Mines at default. But we use a perf that's specifically for latex, so it might make a difference.

    You can change it during printing... I'd suggest experimenting. Really saturated prints will likelly need a higher one... Just keep randomly touching and turning it up if it's not dry. Good news is once you find the best delay / temp, you can set it up to always use it and not have to worry again!

    I've never heard of econovue... But I'm sure bigfish media isn't much more expensive, if it is expensive at all. Sometimes it's worth it to pay a bit more, between media waste and time spent... The extra $50-100 a roll is nothing.
