The latest additions to the HP Indigo material line-up are five new RIT certified products, that include vivid red, yellow, orange, blue, and green. These are engineered for the HP Indigo utilising Kernow’s proprietary Cobalt Coating Technology to eliminate static and improve print performance.
KernowPrint Vivids for HP Indigo are designed to help customers expand their application range through the creative use of new materials. The sheets are manufactured to be water-proof, tear resistant, and static controlled using Kernow’s in-house developed Cobalt Coating Technology. This release of yellow, red, orange, green, and blue addresses some of the most commonly requested colours and each of the KernowPrint Vivids for HP Indigo provides users with the ability to create eye-catching prints quickly and easily. These synthetics, combined with the white ink system of the HP Indigo, open the door to the rapid production of very bright signage, POP displays, brand merchandising opportunities, and specialty promotion pieces.
For end users and brand owners, KernowPrint Vivids offer an extremely durable way to hit target colours and help call attention to advertising and tags. By incorporating the colour into the sheet itself, printers are able to hit extremely consistent, repeatable results without the risk of colours degrading over time through ink scratching, abrasion and moisture. For customers using multiple print locations, the use of KernowPrint Vivids allows for brand consistency across multiple printers and machine types.
According to Dan Lawellin, HP Indigo Materials product manager for Kernow Coatings, ‘Brand owners are always seeking new ways to help draw attention to their brands. With the new KernowPrint Vivids for HP Indigo line, we are helping printers create stunning pieces that are impossible to miss. We’ve seen customers use the material for store signage to call attention to products, safety callouts in factories and merchandise for local sports teams. We’ve even been asked by major brands to create pantone matched sheets so their PSP’s can deliver one-of-a-kind print pieces.’
KernowPrint Vivds for HP Indigo are rolling out worldwide through distributors in Europe, North America, South America, and Asia. Kernow plans to expand the distribution into Australia and Africa in early 2018.
