With its recently signed partnership with HP Indigo, Henkel Adhesive Technologies is helping to further establish digital printing within the flexible packaging industry. Through the partnership, which will span the next three years, both Henkel and HP are committed to providing high-end solutions covering best-in-class printing ink technology with state-of-the-art adhesive solutions.

Henkel already offers adhesive solutions either solvent-based, solvent-free or water-based which are validated by HP Indigo. For the lamination of flexible packaging the adhesive and printing ink need to be compatible to deliver excellent results. Henkel will be investing further in the development of adhesives to create solutions which perfectly fit with HP Indigo digital presses and HP Indigo ElectroInks.

“We are excited about this partnership with HP Indigo, a very powerful and leading supplier for digital printing,” said Dirk Vianden, Business Director Flexible Laminates Europe. “It allows us to support our customers with best in class expertise and ideal adhesives to speed up efficiency and time to market.”
