Press release from the issuing company

Pittsford, New York - Kernow North America announces the launch of the new KernowPrint for HP Indigo line of printable synthetic materials featuring Cobalt Coating technology.  This new line of ready-to-print and certified synthetic media is designed to address the needs of HP Indigo users seeking high performance printable synthetics.  KernowPrint for HP Indigo provides a wide range of synthetic solutions for users, including: bright white synthetics, specialty colors, and an expanded range of printable films.

Kernow’s new line HP Indigo ready-to-print media is aimed at helping printers take advantage of the growing trend in synthetic printing.  The durable, tear resistant, and long-lasting benefits of printing on synthetics has opened new doors for printers servicing customers in a wide range of markets and helps those looking to take full advantage of HP Indigo’s print technology.  The RIT Certified KernowPrint for Indigo range will include KernowPrint Elite bright white synthetic paper, KernowPrint Vivid and Pastel colored synthetic media, and plans to increase the number of available materials to include vinyl, styrene, and specialty media such as metallized films. 

KernowPrint for Indigo ready-to-run films feature the proprietary Cobalt Coating technology developed by Kernow. This latest chemistry is the results of years of research and experience creating chemistries that optimize the performance of films in the digital print market.  Cobalt for HP Indigo provides an exceptional print surface and maximizes ink adhesion of the HP Indigo inks.  Beyond improved print performance, Cobalt delivers an unmatched level of static control in films and enhanced stability in difficult prints.  Cobalt is designed to work with a very wide range of print media and performs exceptionally well in all the HP Indigo print equipment.

“There has been a strong push from our customers and partners for some time to deliver a range of synthetics for HP Indigo that addresses market needs,” states Kernow’s Dan Lawellin.  “In putting together this portfolio of products, we have consulted industry leaders and relied heavily on customer feedback to create a product set that not only fills market gaps, but takes in to consideration the features and benefits that mean the most to printers.  We’ve tried to address as many of these features as possible, from stabilizing films for easy multi-shot printing, to utilizing our Cobalt technology to control static and improve overall print performance on challenging materials.”

The new line of KernowPrint for HP Indigo will begin rolling out in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia following the DSCOOP Exhibition in Lyon, France in June.
