CINCINNATI, OH (November 16, 2010) – Michelman has introduced DigiPrime® 6029, the newest addition to its line of primers and overprint varnishes for use with HP Indigo presses. The new primer is designed specifically for the demands of high-speed printing on the HP Indigo WS6000 label and package printing digital press.
DigiPrime 6029 is an HP-approved solution that produces superior ink transfer, ink adhesion and rub resistance on embossed and heavily textured, pressure-sensitive paper label stock. It’s non-blocking and moisture resistant, and is backward compatible with older model Indigo presses.
Unlike other commercial primers for Indigo presses which are formulated entirely from petrochemical derivatives, a robust 48% of the active (solid) raw material in DigiPrime 6029 comes from renewable sources. Since it’s solvent free, odorless and repulpable, it’s a workplace and environmentally friendly product.
