DesignJet Z6100
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

Hey y'all!! 

 

Okay, I have a new and odd question!! I have a DesignJet Z6100, which I lovey love. We are about to start doing vehicle wraps, and I have from my inside source (The wrap guys in the next town, lol) that latex printing is the way to go for wraps. My question is, is it possible to change my DJ to latex inks? Or is it a whole different printing system? Thank you in advance!

 

Sarah ❤️

Can you use the Z6100 for outdoor signs on vinyl?  Do you have to use latex ink?  Is this ink compatible with this printer or should I consider buying a different one?  If so, what kind should I get?  Thanks!!

Do you have to use latex ink?

 Z6100 Does not use Latex, Use Ink

 

 Is this ink compatible with this printer or should I consider buying a different one? If so, what kind should I get? 

 Here is the datasheet of the printer, you will find the compatible ink there and the part numbers

t didn't say anything on those links about being able to use eco solvent ink.  Do you know if this can be used on this printer?  This is the kind of ink I was told to use for outdoor signs.  Is this right?  Thanks for all the info!!I
