Michelman’s New Energy Curable DigiGuard OPVs Complement its Industry Leading DigiPrime Digital Press Primers

CINCINNATI, OH (September 8, 2016) – Michelman will introduce a new line of energy curable DigiGuard® overprint varnishes at Labelexpo Americas 2016. The OPVs have been tested and certified by RIT’s HP Indigo Over Print Varnish Performance Program and are designed for narrow web label and folding carton printing applications. DigiGuard OPVs perfectly complement Michelman’s DigiPrime® primers, the industry’s preferred brand of primer for use with HP Indigo presses. Available from one convenient source, the Michelman primers and OPVs work in tandem to enhance and protect the appearance of printed materials.

Michelman will also introduce a selection of water-based DigiGuard solutions that meet a wide range of market needs, from general purpose to high-performance applications, on both paper and filmic substrates.

Michelman will feature DigiGuard, DigiPrime and other industry leading solutions in booth #5737 at Labelexpo Americas 2016, which is being held September 13-15, 2016 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
