CINCINNATI, OH - Michelman has introduced DigiPrime 6029, the newest addition to its line of primers and overprint varnishes for use with HP Indigo presses. The new primer is designed specifically for the demands of high-speed printing on the HP Indigo WS6000 label and package printing digital press.
DigiPrime 6029 is an HP-approved solution that produces superior ink transfer, ink adhesion and rub resistance on embossed and heavily textured, pressure-sensitive paper label stock. It's non-blocking and moisture resistant, and is backward compatible with older model Indigo presses. It also provides excellent performance on polyethylene label stock on the WS6000 press.
Unlike other commercial primers for Indigo presses which are formulated entirely from petrochemical derivatives, a robust 48% of the active (solid) raw material in DigiPrime 6029 comes from renewable sources. Since it's solvent free, odorless and repulpable, it's a workplace and environmentally friendly product.
