MACtac Printing Products' INDIE Digital Stocks Certified for HP Indigo WS6000 Press
Continuing to enhance its INDIE line of certified stocks to help converters address the latest advances in digital press technology, MACtac Printing Products recently received RIT certification for four of its INDIE film labelstocks on the HP Indigo WS6000 press.
MACtac’s INDIE Clear Polypropylene (ICP9502), INDIE Matte Polypropylene (IMP1810), INDIE Gloss Polypropylene (IGP2602) and INDIE Label-Lyte (ILL9500) are topcoated for printing on the HP Indigo series WS2000, WS4000 and now WS6000 presses with excellent results. The pre-treated film labelstocks alleviate the need for converters to apply their own topcoats on the press and are available with a variety of adhesive options to meet most labeling application needs.
“As digital press technology continues to evolve, so do the printing requirements for each new press. MACtac is constantly expanding our INDIE line of certified digital labelstocks allowing us to provide customers with a variety of material options that are compatible with the latest press technologies,” said Allison Hazel, marketing manager. “Our goal is to serve as an industry leader in topcoating, and we are focused on advancing our expertise in that area in order to provide an extensive product offering to the digital printing industry.”
The four recently certified film labelstocks offer high durability for demanding applications and cover a range of constructions:
• INDIE ICP9502 is a 2.0-mil clear polypropylene that enables a ‘no label look’ for food, cosmetic, beverage and household cleaning product applications. It features MACtac’s well-established ST95 general-purpose acrylic emulsion adhesive, for aggressive initial tack and excellent adhesion and mandrel hold, and a 40# liner, making it an economical digital print option.
• INDIE IMP1810 is a 3.0-mil matte polypropylene, featuring MACtac’s MP910 patented non-ooze adhesive, offering ultimate adhesion and virtually eliminating the need for adhesive cleanup on the press. Designed for semi-rigid and rigid containers, typical applications include cosmetics, household cleaning products, food and beverage labeling and more.
