Michelman develops primer solution for Memjet DuraLink

September 30, 2018  By PrintAction Staff

Michelman is expanding its JetPrime brand portfolio of solutions to include technology used with pigmented water-based inkjet printing applications. Its newest primer, JetPrime WB 1100 is formulated for coated offset substrates and is an effective primer for high-speed commercial printing applications, including folding carton and corrugated.

“Memjet developed DuraLink to give printers a technology that could affordably produce high-speed, quality output,” says Kim Champion, vice president, Inks and Materials at Memjet Technology. “Working with Michelman, we enhanced the DuraLink solution by creating an optimized primer for our DuraLink inks. Using this new primer on offset paper gives printers much greater flexibility in the media they use with their DuraLink press, simplifying their media supply chain and providing an overall lower cost per print than using inkjet media.”
JetPrime WB 1100 is designed to enrich image quality through improved hold out and reduced bleed and mottle.
“At the very start, we set out to develop an industry-wide solution that allows for unprecedented quality at significantly lower cost of ownership,” explains Lisa DiGate, Michelman’s Vice President, Printing & Packaging, “Michelman is investing heavily to enable digital printing. This development with Memjet is incredibly exciting, opening up new spaces and applications, globally, and across industries.”
Michelman also offers overprint varnishes (OPVs) that allows for a systems approach with primers and designated OPVs.
