Some 10m people are expected to have seen the Expression Numerik graphics at Paris's RER Luxembourg station during its six-month installation
Managing director Franck Minnaert comments that the 2.6m latex engine 'frequently helps [Expression Numerik] win business'. "Like any business our ability to survive depends upon us making money, but we won’t do this if it compromises on the environment," he states.
One customer includes photographer Franck Vogel, who required six 6 x 16m graphics for a project with French public transport operator RATP, which uses the RER Luxembourg station in Paris to showcase individuals and organisations that promote sustainability. The graphics depict the Bishnois people of India, who are 'generally regarded as being among the world's first conservationists'.
Expression Numerik used its HP LX600 to output onto a 100 percent chlorine- and phthalate-free self-adhesive vinyl, which RATP required to be both odour-free and fire-retardant.
"We were delighted with the finished results, above all because the vivid and intense colours of the original photographs were so faithfully reproduced," adds Minnaert. "It's fair to say that we frequently win business as a direct result of the attributes of the latex inks."
