Also, for HP Indigo digital press owners expanding into markets like home and personal care which require exceptional performance, Michelman will feature DigiGuard® 901 for Pack Ready for Labels, a strengthener for HP Indigo validated UV OPVs used with Michelman’s in-line primers, which enables enhanced water, chemical, and thermal durability.
