Visitors to the HP booth can witness the new media being printed on the HP Indigo press with HP’s Electroink, informed Java Paper Group’s Hema Java.

The Metalprint Digital is part of Iggesund Paperboard’s Invercote range. The paperboard is laminated with metallised PET to the print side making it suitable for decorative printings where a metallic effect is required. The paperboard is said to have superior surface smoothness and barrier properties.

Highlighting the USP of the digital media, Java said, “The Metalprint Digital is developed and certified for printing without pre-treatment on the HP Indigo four-series one shot. This eliminates the need for an additional priming step and makes the digital print process even more efficient.”

The Metalprint digital is targeted at packaging segments such as wine and spirits; cosmetics; hair care and toiletries; and confectionery among others, where brands seek luxury appeal.

Besides this, Java will showcase Invercote Creato (200-400 gsm), two-side equally coated premium SBS paperboard and Invercote G (200-350 gsm) top-side coated premium SBS paperboard from Iggesund Paperboard.

“We will also have the uncoated textured Zeta range from Germany for stationery and commercial applications, grease-resistance papers for food packaging, and the glossiest cast-coated Chromolux paper and paperboard from Zanders, Germany,” added Java.

Moreover, on display will also be Chromolux and Zanlabel label papers and digital papers such as Zanjet, Pure Silk, and Chromolux Digital from Zanders, Germany.

The countdown to the PrintPack India 2019 has begun. The six-day show with more than 480 exhibitors and over 24,500 sqm of booked floorspace is set to commence on 1 February 2019 at the India Expo Centre in Greater Noida.
