Michelman will spotlight a selection of water-based in-line and off-line primers, overprint varnishes, and strengtheners for HP Indigo at Labelexpo Americas 2022, to be held on 13 to 15 September 2022. 

The company will also highlight its primer and overprint varnish portfolio for inkjet-based printing platforms. All featured products are developed with sustainability and circular economy initiatives in mind.

Michelman’s HP Indigo LEP printing solutions are developed closely with HP Indigo and designed specifically for that platform. 

A complete portfolio of DigiPrime primers optimizes print quality for labels and flexible packaging on a wide range of substrates for both in-line and off-line use, and DigiGuard water-based OPVs offer increased durability and protection, including for food contact applications. 

New to the lineup is DigiGuard Plus, a suite of strengtheners that adds increased water, thermal, chemical, and mechanical resistance to UV OPVs.

Michelman develops solutions for high-speed inkjet, where offerings are focused primarily on folding cartons, corrugated packaging, and commercial printing applications. This includes JetPrime water-based primers for both paper and film substrates, and DigiGuard IJ overprint coatings, which offer increased durability and faster drying times in tailored surface finishes.

In addition to its line of primers, OPVs, and strengtheners for printing applications, Michelman offers a line of barrier and functional coatings for flexible packaging applications. 

The company’s next-generation primers, barrier coatings, topcoats, and heat seal coatings can meet performance and regulatory requirements otherwise provided by less desirable materials. They help reduce weight and complexity and expand the possibilities for recyclable and compostable packaging.

Michelman solutions are suitable for a wide range of printing and packaging applications. The company’s associates are known for their technical expertise and ability to provide superior application support for its global base of customers. 

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
