    Does anyone know how is the scratch resistance between the HP latex ink and Mimaki UCJV uv ink? We practically never laminate our prints and I would like to know the answer in that particularly matter. Thanks.

    Is there a standardized test similar to something like the Rockwell Scale?

    Interesting, looks to be about $4700. Would be cool if someone like Grimco or some company bought this to test a bunch of materials.

    Hey Ben,
    We've never run latex so I don't have much to compare to, but the prints are very scratch resistant off the UCJV using LUS 170 inks. I was worried about that at first but the ink is far more durable than I expected. I've been meaning to wrap one of our walls w/ unlaminated prints from the Mimaki and still hope to soon.
    Let me know if you want me to do any testing for you.
    Cheers,
    Pat
