CINCINNATI, OH (March 24, 2017) – Michelman’s DigiPrime® 4453 will be under the spotlight at the Xeikon Café being held March 27-31, 2017 at Xeikon’s Lier facility in Lier, Antwerp, Belgium.
DigiPrime 4453 is a water-based digital press primer formulated for use on Xeikon digital presses. It promotes excellent ink adhesion to most IML films, improves rub resistance, and is Xeikon-approved for use with Xeikon dry toners including QA-I, ICE and Cheetah, which run respectively on the Xeikon 3000 Series, and the Xeikon CX3 presses.
The highly effective DigiPrime 4453 is particularly effective for difficult applications such as in-mold label printing, and is approved for food contact in both Europe and the USA with limited restrictions depending on end-use. As a 100% aqueous product, DigiPrime is a safer option for operators and the environment.
DigiPrime 4453 will be featured in live, total solution food and beverage applications in combination with Xeikon presses during the Xeikon Café.
“Events like Xeikon Café are an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges label and packaging printers face,” said Jan Denies, Industry Manager, Printing & Packaging Group of Michelman. “We will be listening particularly to the printers in attendance, to better understand their needs as they transition to digital printing solutions.”
