CINCINNATI, OH (September 30, 2015) – Michelman will be featuring a variety of its flagship print receptive and functional coating technologies for the printing & packaging markets at IndiaPack 2015, being held October 8-11, 2015 in Mumbai, India. Visitors will find Michelman in Hall 1, F07. Supack International, Michelman’s long-time sales and service agent, who Michelman acquired in early 2015, will be fully integrated into the exhibit.
Highlighted at Michelman’s booth will be Michem Flex HS-series heat seal coatings, formulated to balance low initiation temperatures with high ultimate bond strength; as well as its broad selection of functional coating additives including Michem Emulsion and Michem Lube that are added to water-based flexible packaging coatings to maximize the efficiency of form, fill and seal operations.
Michelman solutions also include Michem® Flex P-series primers that provide high bond strength when used as tie layers for water-based coatings on film. Other grades enhance the receptivity of flexible substrates for better, more efficient extrusion of PE and PP. Specific grades are applicable to dry, wet, and retort packaging.
The company will also feature 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 applications.
