USA • Michelman announced it will display its line of primers for use with HP Indigo digital presses for labels and packaging at Dscoop North America Conference held April 14-16 in San Antonio, Texas (Booth 351). DigiPrime 050 is a primer for use in the priming and unwinding unit (PUW) of the HP Indigo 20000, a press designed to print on reel-based flexible packaging substrates, labels and shrink sleeves. Michelman said it enhances adhesive bond strength between film layers and can be used on conventional adhesive laminated structures.
DigiPrime 060 is a primer for the HP Indigo 30000, a sheet-fed press designed to print on folding cartons. According to the company, it enhances ink adhesion on the substrate and will not interfere with converting operations including erection of the carton, gluing, date coding and bar coding.
DigiPrime 680 and Michem In-Line Primer 030 are made for use in the in-line priming (ILP) unit of the HP Indigo WS6X00 series and the new HP Indigo 8000 digital presses. It’s effective for flexible packaging printing applications and improves ink receptivity on most types of film, exhibits good lamination bond strength, and improves printing performance on shrink sleeves, the company said. Michem In-Line Primer 030 is suited for most label substrates.
