Michelman is moving the industry forward with innovations in print receptive, functional and barrier coating technologies, plus hands-on worldwide support from our veteran team of chemists, packaging engineers, and print process experts.
Primers and OPVs each play different roles in the digital production environment, but together they provide printed material with water resistance, chemical resistance, scratch resistance, and thermal resistance. They also increase gamut, prevent colors from fading, and enable greater customization.
The Michelman brands of water-based primers and coatings offer critical functionality to complex packaging structures for food, medical, and consumer goods applications.
Performance brands such as VaporCoat®, Plate Kote™, HydraBan® and many others are the recognized industry solutions for paper products and packaging used in the most demanding applications.
