Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, has introduced a new line of imPress™ ID paper additives designed exclusively for HP Indigo digital presses. The new imPress™ ID chemistries are up to eight times more efficient at generating Indigo print adhesion. With these new additives, paper mills can efficiently and cost-effectively produce papers with a three-star rating for HP Indigo digital presses. “As digital printing continues to take market share from offset presses, the demand for papers optimized for digital printing systems will increase,” said Tom Hayden, Global Marketing Director, Printing and Writing. “Our imPress™ ID additives are very easy to run, so papermakers can diversify by quickly adding Indigo-approved grades to their portfolios. Mills that already produce Indigo grades can enjoy a number of additional benefits.” A main benefit is improved runnability. With imPress™ ID paper additives, no changes are required to the size press or machine settings. The chemistry is non-charged, so it doesn’t form deposits, agglomerate or cause stickies-related issues. In addition, the new imPress™ ID products are exceptionally versatile and work well with optical brightening agents and other size press chemistries. Click read more below for additional detail.
