PRIME PrLs - New Compatible, Affordable Ink Solution for HP™ 9000/HP™ 8000/Oce’™

At Viscom, Bordeaux will present the popular Bordeaux PRIME PrLs, a HP 9000 compatible ink in chipped cartridges with enhanced color gamut that match the original. Bordeaux’s PRIME PrLs Low Solvent Ink can replace the original HP 9000 inks at a significantly lower cost, without forfeiting the speed and high quality prints for which these printers are known.
Bordeaux’s PRIME PrLs maintains the OEM ink properties such as Viscosity, Surface Tension and Pigment Particle Size. These parameters ensure print quality, ink flow through the ink delivery system, droplet properties, color-to-color and printed media interaction.

Bordeaux continues to expand its unique Plug & Print, Mix & Match product lines; the PrLs ink cartridges can replace each of the HP9000 OEM ink cartridges individually while other color channels continue using original cartridges. There is no need for flushing or color matching. This saves the operator setup time and cost, since the original cartridges can be fully used, before replacing them with the Bordeaux compatible cartridges.
