HP Tough paper
When printing on heavy paper types, use the following guidelines:
Use Tray 1 for paper that is heavier than 120 g/m
For optimum results when printing on heavy paper, use the printer control panel to set the media
type for the tray to HEAVY 105-120 G/M2.
In either the software application or the driver, select Heavy as the media type, or print from a tray
that is configured for heavy paper.
Because this setting affects all print jobs, it is important to return the printer back to its original
settings once the job has printed. See
In general, do not use paper that is heavier than the media specification
recommended for this printer. Doing so can cause misfeeds, paper jams, reduced print quality,
and excessive mechanical wear.

undesirable emissions when subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature of approximately 190°C
(374°F) for 0.1 second.
Inks must be non-flammable and should not adversely affect any printer rollers.
