    LH-100 inks are good for scratch and chemical resistance. (Usually the smaller flat beds use these inks for promotional items that need really good scratch resistance but not a lot of flexibility)

    LUS-120 inks are good for scratch resistance and flexibility (Usually used on roll to roll machine for printing vinyl)

    LUS-150 inks are balanced for adhesion and flexibility (Usually used on the JFX200 or other large flat beds for printing directly to substrates)

    LUS-170 is like LUS120 but used in the new roll to roll UV machines.

    Most of my customers use the LH-100 on the smaller ones and LUS-150 on the JFX200. That being said, I do have a customer using the LH-100 on the JFX200 and he does fine printing on hockey pucks and acrylic for the most part.
