Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

wallcAhlstrom has taken part in the HP (Hewlett-Packard) Registered Latex Development Programme and a wide number of the company’s poster papers and wallcover substrates based on nonwovens have met the HP compatibility standard.

HP Latex inks are water-based and said to offer important advantages over the eco or low-solvent inks used in commercial and industrial inkjet printing. No special workplace ventilation is required to use the HP printers employing these inks and a key innovation is the incorporation of latex polymer particles.

‘Latex’ is a term used here to describe a stable, aqueous dispersion of microscopic polymer particles which should not be confused  with those found in natural materials, such as latex rubber. While some individuals experience skin irritation from contact with natural latex compounds, the synthetic polymers employed are non-allergenic.
