Michelman at drupa

Michelman is set to showcase its extensive suite of water-based primer and OPV solutions tailored to the HP Industrial Print ecosystem at drupa 2024 in Hall 5/D21.

The company will demonstrate its commitment to advancing the digital printing field and highlight its strategic partnership with HP. Also featured will be Michelman’s barrier and functional coatings for packaging applications that deliver critical performance attributes while helping customers meet sustainability and circular economy initiatives.

Central to Michelman’s featured solutions is DigiPrime® Vision 9000, a primer that sets new standards for performance and compatibility. Approved by HP for use on the HP Indigo 6K and 8K Digital Presses, DigiPrime® Vision 9000 is a testament to Michelman’s commitment to innovation.

Additional DigiPrime® Vision primers, including options designed for the new HP Indigo V12 Digital Press, are under development. With DigiPrime® Vision on the HP Indigo V12, print service providers will be able to move longer runs to digital, reducing media waste and overstocking.

Michelman’s innovation extends beyond print-receptive primers to a wider portfolio of coatings, all of which are water-based, repulpable, and PFAS-free. This includes barrier coatings to control the transmission of oxygen, mineral oil, and moisture vapour; coatings that provide resistance to water, oil, and grease; adhesion promoters to aid extrusion and metallization; overprint coatings that protect against marring, scratches, and UV light; and heat seal coatings designed for a range of initiation temperatures. These technologies can be combined in packaging structures to form a complete coating system which delivers critical performance properties while making improved end-of-life outcomes possible.
