Michelman is an innovator of environmentally conscious primers and aqueous overprint coatings for all parts of the print product life cycle. They are also well known for developing barrier and functional coatings used in the production of consumer and industrial paper products, and commercially printed materials. They partner with OEMs to introduce new and sustainable technology for the press room with solutions designed to interact with multiple layer inkjet print stacks. Their DigiGuard® IJ, specially formulated for demanding aqueous inkjet applications, is a series of odorless, aqueous overprint coatings for folding carton, direct mail, and brochures. They also offer technology for corrugate that protects inkjet-printed images during the demanding corrugation process. These durable, fast-drying coatings deliver improved water, chemical, and scratch resistance in a range of tailored surface finishes. They are cold-set gluable and can be used for indirect food contact applications. Michelman serves its customers with production facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, product development and technical service centers in several major global markets, and a worldwide team of highly trained business development personnel.
