Building upon nearly two decades of innovation and partnership with HP Indigo, Michelman’s extensive end-to-end application knowledge, and direct input from press owners and operators, DigiPrime® Vision is engineered to provide superior performance, efficiency, and functionality for increased uptime, higher press operator satisfaction, and expanded opportunities for growth with HP Indigo Digital Presses. DigiPrime® Vision water-based, in-line digital print primers deliver the best possible printed output, with increased flexibility and consistent runnability on the widest range of substrates—including recyclable and renewably sourced materials.
DigiPrime® Vision is compatible with the widest range of substrates of any digital print primer, born from decades of fundamental science coupled with real-world applications experience. Crafted to obtain superior runnability in even the most challenging applications, DigiPrime® Vision makes it possible to achieve a high-quality digital print on substrates where ink adhesion can be especially difficult, including vinyls, heavily textured papers, and even novel and exotic substrates such as velvet, wood veneer, and twill. Engineered to enable the breakthrough speeds of the HP Indigo V12 Digital Press, DigiPrime® Vision also helps make running larger and more complex jobs on HP Indigo Digital Presses the smart choice for increased versatility and sustainability.
DigiPrime® Vision helps bring more sustainable materials, processes, and knowhow into the HP Indigo ecosystem. In combination with the HP Indigo V12 Digital Press, it will allow larger and more complex jobs to be digitally printed, reducing media waste and excess inventory. And, thanks to its broad substrate compatibility, DigiPrime® Vision provides press owners with more options than ever before for printing on recyclable and renewably sourced substrates. Select DigiPrime® primers have passed extensive testing for ecotoxicity, heavy metals, and fluorine content, which conform to leading industry standards such as ASTM and the European Committee of Standardization.1
DigiPrime® primers can also be used in concert with Michelman’s broad portfolio of water-based functional and barrier coatings to enable packaging structures with improved end-of-life options. As a leader in water-based coatings and environmentally conscious technologies, Michelman leverages nearly 75 years of application expertise to develop solutions that support a circular economy. Michelman’s solutions for both flexible and rigid packaging impart critical functionality such as water, oil, and grease resistance; oxygen and moisture vapor transmission control; and heat seal directly to paper and film substrates. This enables the creation of packaging structures that are compatible with existing recycling streams, compostable, and/or lighter in weight, and can help brands transition packaging from film to paper, while continuing to meet or exceed demanding performance, regulatory, and food contact requirements.
