Hewlett-Packard Indigo: Hewlett-Packard Indigo: Coating system
Michelman and Utopia Digital Technologies have teamed up to develop an advanced printing surface designed to enhance the printing of polymer and plastic media on HP Indigo® presses.
The HP-certified coating, called Extreva® CS3, is a modification of Michelman’s DigiPrime® technology. It is preapplied to the substrate, eliminating the need for press owners to handle chemicals. Available on PVC and synthetic sheets, Extreva CS3 features a suite of beneficial properties not previously available to HP Indigo press operators. Coating produces consistent color development from sheet-to-sheet and lot-to-lot, good ink and coating adhesion, and highly functional performance. Coating is exclusively distributed by GPA, a paper and film substrate supplier based in Chicago.
