Press release from the issuing company

Barcelona, Spain – Five HP Scitex inks for sign and display printing have been added to the official list of those that meet the chemical requirements of the Nordic Ecolabel (also known as Nordic Swan) for print service providers (PSPs).

PSPs that have been granted Nordic Ecolabel licensing for the production of printed matter have demonstrated that they fulfill a number of environmental requirements that make them some of the least polluting PSPs in the Nordic region printing industry.

The HP Scitex XP222 UV curable ink used by the HP Scitex XP5100, HP Scitex XP2100, HP Scitex XP5300 and the HP Scitex XP2300 Printers when used in standard mode, have been added to the list. In addition, two other UV curable inks - HP Scitex TJ200 and HP Scitex FB221, which are used respectively in the HP Scitex TJ8550 Printer and the HP Scitex FB7500 Printer, a high productivity flatbed, machine have been added.

The HP Scitex WB300 water-based ink used by the HP Scitex FB6700 Printer has also been approved. The HP Scitex PT10 and PT20 pre-treatments for this printer have also been accepted as meeting the chemical requirements or the Nordic Ecolabel forPSPs.

Furthermore, a solvent ink, HP Scitex TJ100 has also been added to the approved list. It is used with the HP Scitex TJ8350 Printer.

These inks join a range of HP Designjet-branded inks used for sign and display printing already listed by Nordic Ecolabel. These include HP786 and HP789 water-based HP Latex Inks, used respectively by the HP Designjet L65500 Printer and HP Designjet L25500 Printer, as well as HP91 water-based inks used by the HP Designjet Z6100 Printer.

HP is leading the greening of sign and display printing, with a wide range of innovations including technologies and products developed under the stringent HP Design for Environment program, including digital signage printing solutions that can replace less efficient screen printers, inks with an improved environmental profile versus the alternatives, recyclable signage media and a growing range of take-back and recycling programs that now include hardware and selected consumables and media in an increasing number of countries.
