FLEXcon Unveils Eight New DigiPRO® Films with DPM® Overlaminates
Products give HP Indigo-converted images greater durability
Spencer, MA (July 22, 2009) - In response to a demand for products that can improve the durability of HP Indigo-printed images, FLEXcon has introduced eight new DigiPRO(r) pressure-sensitive films featuring a topcoat that is specifically designed for use with digital offset printing presses.
The new DigiPRO products are offered with either of two complementary DPM overlaminates for applications requiring more durability and fade resistance.
The permanent adhesive, DigiPRO constructions consist of two vinyls and six polyesters. Products can be utilized for a variety of durable goods applications, such as brand ID and warning labels, which require a high-shear, high-peel adhesive to resist cold flow and ooze. FLEXcon also offers two removable adhesive constructions supplied in flexible white vinyl for temporary product identification tracking applications.
"Like many of our other products, DigiPRO films and our complementary DPM overlaminate systems help expand the application possibilities for the HP Indigo digital press," says Product Manager Steve Allard. "Our aim is to provide customers with new ways to make money by leveraging FLEXcon substrates and the investments they have made in the market-leading HP Indigo technology."
DigiPRO films are specifically designed for small-format digital printing with HP Indigo inks and ensure excellent ink receptivity for sharp vibrant image quality. They can be combined with either DPM CVE (Clear Velvet Embossed) or DPM UVCG (UV Clear Gloss) overlaminates to dramatically help reduce fading due to weather and sunlight, significantly extending the life of the HP Indigo printed image. DigiPRO films can also be over-laminated with any of FLEXcon's many other overlaminates to achieve a desired finish and/or price point. All constructions are offered with either a Kraft roll form liner or a two-side polycoated layflat sheet liner. DigiPRO films that utilize the DMP CVE overlaminate are rated for 2-year outdoor durability, while DigiPRO films coated with the DPM UVCG overlaminate are rated for 5-year outdoor durability.

DigiPRO DGFW Flexible White Vinyl High-Performance Permanent Adhesive Roll Liner
