RIT certifies two MGX substrates for Indigo WS6000

April 11, 2011

The film materials are for use in shrink and pouch applications.

The Rochester Institute of Technology’s Printing Applications Laboratory has certified two Masterpiece Graphix (MGX) materials for use on HP Indigo WS6000: Masterpiece Premium PETG Shrink Film (R1397) and Masterpiece Premium White/Silver Cosmetic Web (R0103). R1397 is also certified for use on the ws4500/ws4050.

Masterpiece Premium PETG Shrink Film (R1397) is a 50 micron, high-shrinkage co-polyester shrink film formulated for digital printing on the HP Indigo. It allows seaming without a pattern coating on the primer. Masterpiece Premium PETG shrink film is scuff-resistant and primed for digital printing on the outside of the film surface.

The Premium White/Silver Cosmetic Web (R0103) is a polyester-faced laminating material used in HP Indigo flexible packaging and pouch production of wet goods and liquids. It is heat-sealable and provides protection from oxygen and moisture.
