CINCINNATI, OH (September 5, 2013) – Michelman will be unveiling two new DigiPrime® primers optimized for the HP Indigo 20000 and HP Indigo 30000 digital presses at LabelExpo Europe 2013, being held September 24-27, 2013 in Brussels, Belgium. Michelman will be exhibiting in booth “PATIO”.
Both of the primers are HP-recommended and produce outstanding ink adhesion and print quality. When used on the HP Indigo 20000, designed for flexible packaging converters, DigiPrime 050 will enhance the adhesive bond strength between film layers, allowing use in conventional adhesive laminated structures. DigiPrime 060, designed for folding cartons, will allow printing and subsequent converting operations such as gluing and coding.
Michelman offers a full line of primers and overprint varnishes formulated to allow HP Indigo users to get the most out of their presses. DigiPrime and Michem® In-Line primers are HP-recommended and improve ink receptivity, rub resistance and image quality on most type of paper, plastic and film. DigiGuard® overprint varnish enhances print quality and protects printed materials.
