CINCINNATI, OH - Michelman has introduced the latest addition to its line of HP-recommended DigiPrime® digital press primers. Water-based DigiPrime 680 is formulated for use with the HP Indigo WS6X00 series of digital presses and is particularly effective for flexible packaging printing applications. It improves ink receptivity on most types of film, exhibits good lamination bond strength, and improves printing performance on shrink sleeves.
Customers with existing WS6X00 presses will require an upgrade kit from HP to run DigiPrime 680. HP Indigo will shortly implement a solution that will allow newly purchased WS6800 presses with in-line priming (ILP) units to run DigiPrime 680 with no modifications.
DigiPrime 680 is a proprietary Michelman product, manufactured in Singapore, Belgium and the USA, and available worldwide.
Michelman offers an extensive line of primers and overprint varnishes formulated to allow HP Indigo users to get the most out of their presses. DigiPrime and Michem® In-Line primers are HP-recommended and improve ink receptivity and durability on a wide variety of paper and synthetic substrates. DigiGuard® overprint varnish enhances print quality and protects printed materials.
