Monadnock Paper Mills, Inc. (MPM), a family-owned manufacturer that delivers high-performance specialty papers for the technical, packaging and printing markets, recently announced new strategic development utilizing Michelman materials. Michelman is a global developer of water-based and functional print receptive coatings.

Monadnock has commercialized their next-generation of mill-applied coating solutions to satisfy the increasingly demanding performance standards for HP Indigo qualified print media.

“Our challenge was to develop a high-caliper vellum textured substrate that is compatible with HP Indigo Electroink print technology. Combining Monadnock’s long history of technical/specialty and fine papermaking with Michelman’s new primer coating DigiPrime 1600© has yielded third-party certified, best-performing three-star results for runability, photo-quality ink adhesion and blanket compatibility (>12k impressions) on HP Indigo digital presses,” says Paul Ciccone, Monadnock’s vice president of research and development.
