Michelman to Showcase Next-Generation Digital Print Primers at Dscoop Edge Indy

Michelman will exhibit at Dscoop Edge Indianapolis, where they will showcase their full portfolio of water-based coatings for HP Indigo Digital Presses and participate in two educational sessions, exploring how to balance performance and sustainability in digitally printed labels and packaging applications.
Dscoop attendees will be introduced to DigiPrime® Vision, a groundbreaking new line of primers. Designed specifically for the inline priming units (ILPs) of HP Indigo Digital Presses—including the new HP Indigo V12 Digital Press—these primers help facilitate moving more analog jobs to digital, reducing media waste and overstocking. DigiPrime® Vision 9000, the new inline primer for the HP Indigo 6K and 8K Digital Presses, provides the highest possible print quality on the broadest range of substrates of any digital print primer, from smooth vinyl to heavily textured papers, as well as niche materials such as twill, wood veneer, and velvet.
Lori Gobris, Global Marketing Director for Packaging, will bring three decades of expertise in the paper and flexible packaging industries to a panel discussion titled “Initiating Sustainable Print Practices” on Monday, March 25th at 1pm. Aimed at business owners and executives, topics will include best practices, common standards, and crucial first steps in the journey toward a more sustainable print future.
Dr. Molly Hladik, Global R&D Manager for Digital Printing, will present “Regulatory Considerations When Moving From Labels To Flexible Packaging in Digital Printing” which will cover concerns around inks and coatings, as well as downstream performance factors such as food contact, migration, and process conditions for flexible packaging. Her lecture will also touch on how the use of coatings can help us move to a more circular economy by enabling broader substrate use. Molly’s presentation is Monday, March 25th at 2:45pm.
Michelman’s comprehensive suite of water-based, repulpable, and PFAS-free coatings impart critical barrier and functional properties to packaging structures, helping companies transition packaging from film to paper, or downguage film-based packaging to support improved end-of-life options—such as recyclability and compostability—without compromising performance. Michelman’s application and regulatory experts will be available in booth #1085 to consult with Dscoop attendees interested in unleashing the full potential of digital printing.
Dscoop Edge Indianapolis is being held March 24-27, 2024, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
