Michelman Presenting Versatile Selection of Printing & Packaging Solutions at Specialty Packaging Films Asia 2016

CINCINNATI, OH (March 3, 2016) – Michelman will be presenting a variety of its flagship print receptive and functional coating technologies at Specialty Packaging Films Asia 2016 international conference being held March 15-17, 2016 in Singapore. Mr. Martin Scott, Regional Sales Manager, Asia-Pacific, Printing & Packaging will be doing a presentation at the show entitled “Latest Developments in Water-Based Coatings.”

In his presentation, Mr. Scott will discuss new coating technologies being used by the flexible packaging industry, as well as the advantages of using water-based in place of solvent-based coatings. The company will also showcase value adding solutions for label and packaging designers and printers; label, flexible packaging and folding carton converters; as well as brand owners.

Highlighted at Michelman’s booth will be 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.

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. The series is applicable to dry, wet, and retort packaging.

Michelman’s Michem Flex HS-series heat seal coatings balance low initiation temperatures with high ultimate bond strength, while its broad selection of functional coating additives includes Michem Emulsion and Michem Lube that are added to water-based flexible packaging coatings to maximize the efficiency of form, fill and seal operations.
