Polytex Introduces 7.4128, a New Flexo Primer Designed for HP Indigo Print Receptivity

BRONX, N.Y. — Bob Waddington, Technical Service Manager at Polytex Environmental Inks, is pleased to announce the development of 7.4128 flexo primer for HP Indigo. 7.4128 is designed to convert conventional substrates to receptivity for the HP Indigo print process.

This new primer provides a receptive surface that will enable high-fidelity HP Indigo imprinting with minimal dot gain, excellent trap values, and strong, vibrant colors.

In addition to facilitating excellent print characteristics, 7.4128 provides an excellent bonding agent between the ink and the substrate. In particular, films like BOPP can be used with no worries about adhesion issues like scratching and scuffing.

7.4128 also provides product resistant characteristics — such as resistance to water, alcohol, mild detergents and so on — on par with conventionally printed inks. The primer is receptive to laminating films and overprint varnishes.

Converting substrate in-house is a much more economical way to realize profits than buying HP Indigo-specific substrates.

As a global leader in environmentally sound and sensible inks, Polytex is now expanding and preparing to offer an even more comprehensive suite of printing industry products, in addition to the water-soluble and energy-curable inks that the company has already pioneered.
