Pulse qualifies for HP ‘how to guide’

Pulse Roll Label Products has been added to the list of approved suppliers in the HP How to guide – selecting varnishes and over-lamination for HP Indigo Labels and Packaging Digital Press.

The company qualifies following rigorous testing of two of its IV DigiTech UV flexo varnishes for digital printing at the HP Indigo demonstration centre in Spain and at its manufacturing facility in Israel.

Aimed at users of HP Indigo digital presses, the IV Digitech range of UV varnishes is available in gloss, matt, super matt and foil blockable formulations and includes a UV primer that permits in-line

UV printing or overprinting to accept digital inks.

The formulations are suited to a wide range of substrates including coated paper, board, coated thermal paper, treated and primed synthetics and aluminium foils. A new addition to the range includes a high-slip digital varnish developed for wine labels that is available in a matt or gloss finish.

“The problem lies in achieving good product resistance when overprinting digitally printed webs,” says

managing director Gary Seward. “The IV varnishes offer excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals as well as hot fill applications where conventional formulations tend to crack.

“The Digitech IV UV overprint varnishes for HP Indigo presses have been specially formulated to provide optimised product resistance without the need to Corona treat or drive off residual imaging oil.”
