Michelman Highlighting Barrier and Functional Coatings for Flexible Packaging Applications at PackPlus South 2017
CINCINNATI, OH (April 4, 2017) – Michelman will showcase its broad selection of barrier and functional coatings formulated for flexible packaging applications at PackPlus South 2017. The show is being held April 7-10, 2017 at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BEIC) in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India, with Michelman exhibiting in booth #F16.
The company will highlight its powerful lineup of flexible packaging solutions including Michem® Flex P-series extrusion coating primers. These proven, water-based formulations render packaging films and papers more receptive to extruded PE and PP film. This allows for a more efficient extrusion process at lower temperatures, and with better adhesion to the substrate. Grades are available for applications ranging from basic dry and wet, to demanding retort packaging.
Also featured at the show will be Michelman’s Michem® Flex HS-series heat seal coatings that balance low initiation temperatures with high ultimate bond strength, as well as Michem Emulsion and Michem Lube, extensive families of functional coating additives that are added to water-based flexible packaging coatings to maximize the efficiency of form, fill and seal operations.
For visitors engaged in digital printing, Michelman will showcase its innovative DigiPrime® primers and DigiGuard® overprint varnishes formulated specifically for printing labels and flexible packaging substrates on digital presses. DigiPrime and DigiGuard are water-based, safe for the environment and the press operator, and are used primarily to improve ink receptivity, rub resistance and image quality on most substrates. Grades are available for paper, film, plastic and metallic substrates.
