Pack Ready for Labels is Michelman’s suite of pre- and post-print solutions for enhanced label resistance. DigiGuard 901 UV OPV Strengthener (an OPV additive) is now commercially available through Michelman after successful evaluations by dozens of customers on a variety of applications including food applications (e.g. olive oil), household and chemical (e.g. paint, detergents) and personal care (e.g. shampoo).
Because of the higher level of water, thermal, and chemical resistance this strengthener provides, HP Indigo press owners are now able to move further up into applications requiring the most stringent industry specification, specifically for the home and personal care segment.
It can be applied post print by mixing with many off the shelf UV overprint varnishes, and provides further versatility as it supports the entire portfolio of HP Indigo’s existing label press solutions including HP Indigo 6000 series presses, HP Indigo 8000 and HP Indigo 20000. It also works with Michelman’s existing Digiprime 680 and Digiprime 050 solutions. For even higher performance, DigiPrime 022 is an innovative water-based primer that enables superior resistivity such as required for pasteurization.
