Michelman (stand 5D20) is offering Labelexpo Europe 2019 attendees a selection of water-based in-line and off-line primers, and overprint varnishes for both HP Indigo and inkjet-based digital printing platforms.

Their range of water-based and UV-based brands for digital presses include DigiPrime® primers for HP Indigo, JetPrime® primers for inkjet, and DigiGuard® for OPVs.

Michelman’s DigiPrime® primers offer digital versatility for a broad array of end-use applications. Many Michelman primers have recently passed ecotoxicity, heavy metals, and fluorine content testing according to ASTM and the European Committee of Standardization for use in compostable packaging.

Also, for HP Indigo digital press owners expanding into markets such as home and personal care, Michelman is featuring DigiGuard® 901 for Pack Ready for Labels, a strengthener for HP Indigo validated UV OPVs used with Michelman’s in-line primers, which enables enhanced water, chemical, and thermal durability.

JetPrime®, Michelman’s brand of primers for inkjet, includes JetPrime® WB 1100 for pigmented water-based inkjet printing applications. Because Inkjet technology offers the advantage of printing larger formats on a broader range of substrates, this technology, for coated offset substrates, is useful for high-speed commercial printing applications such as folding cartons and corrugated.
