Supporting HP’s Color Inkjet Web Presses

Priming for Inkjet Web Presses

HP, in conjunction with Epic Products, has developed the Epic PrimeCoat System to support HP’s Priming Solution. The PrimeCoat enables HP Inkjet Web Press users to print on a broader range of media, including standard offset coated stocks.
