Michelman highlights inkjet technologies at Labelexpo

The result of using the new Michelman JetPrime WB 1100

Michelman, a manufacturer of environmentally friendly coatings, will showcase its newest inkjet technology, including the new JetPrime WB100, at Labelexpo Europe 2019.

The company has expanded its JetPrime brand to include JetPrime WB 1100, a technology for pigmented water-based inkjet printing applications. It has been developed for coated offset substrates and is useful for high-speed printing applications such as folding cartons and corrugated. 

The WB 1100 features enriched image quality through improved hold out and reduced bleed and mottle. Moreover, it is environmentally friendly and non-corrosive formulation extending printers’ and priming equipment life-cycles. 

‘We are investing heavily to enable digital printing and provide solutions that allow for unprecedented quality at a significantly lower cost of ownership,’ said Lisa DiGate, Michelman’s vice president of printing and packaging.

‘The global label industry has undergone significant changes over the years, including globalization, digitization, environmental sustainability pressures, workflow automation, and changing consumer demand. These changes continue to provide both the label industry and Michelman plenty of opportunities to develop solutions to improve the identification and packaging of goods. We feel that JetPrime WB 1100 is one such solution.’

The show visitors will be able to see Michelman’s technologies at Labelexpo Europe 2019 at stand 5D20.
