Masterpiece Graphix (MGX) is now a distributor for Michelman in-line primer products for the HP Indigo 6000 and 6600. Now MGX can provide end-to-end solutions for all HP Indigo presses, including those furnished with an in-line priming unit. MGX will provide three Michelman products as a part of their distributorship agreement: Michem In-Line Primer 030, Michem Clean 1188, and Michem Indicator 001.
Michem In-Line Primer 030 (MGX-1669) applies a print-receptive surface to paper substrates via the in-line priming unit, improving the ink transfer and adhesion of HP Indigo Electroinks. The primer improves the printability of a wide range of paper substrates, both uncoated and clay-coated papers in varying weights and thicknesses. Pressure-sensitive paper-face stocks, including textured papers, are also optimized by the HP Indigo 6000 and 6600 in-line priming unit.
Michem Clean 1188 (MGX-1670) is the recommended cleaning solution for Michem In-Line Primer solutions. The cleaner is added to the cleaning tank of the in-line priming unit.
Michem Indicator 001 (MGX-1671) is an indication solution that detects the presence of Michem In-Line Primer treatment on dry coated substrates. The indicator will change from blue to yellow on dry substrates that have been treated with Michem In-Line Primer coatings.
