The highlight applications on display include inspiring labels and narrow web pouches showcasing Actega’s LED-UV and water-based flexo inks and coatings. Samples of haptic and visual effect coatings for shrink sleeves will also be sure to capture visitors’ attention. These coatings are applied on the outside of the shrink sleeve to give extra impact on the shelf and the variety of high-value effects achievable include soft touch, matte and raised image. Special LED-UV coatings for the internal part of the sleeves will also be on display and experts from the Actega team will be on hand to explain the numerous functional benefits of applying these coatings.

The latest information, samples and news about Actega’s pioneering solutions for sustainable label decoration including Signite and Ecoleaf  will be available at the Actega booth.

Actega’s innovative Signite decoration solution enables brands and converters to significantly reduce waste, while providing expanded design flexibility and recyclability and reuse possibilities. These benefits are a result of the unique qualities of Signite decorations, which were developed with a clear focus on improved sustainability while maintaining the efficiency provided by commercial narrow web printing presses and processes.

Ecoleaf will be demonstrated live on press with AB Graphic in Hall D, Booth #3223. By showcasing the many opportunities and benefits made possible by this ground-breaking sustainable metallization solution, Actega aims to excite the market for Ecoleaf’s US launch foreseen in 2023. Those keen to hear more first-hand should register for Paolo Grasso’s (sales director for Ecoleaf) masterclass entitled: Digital embellishment case study: Ecoleaf on Wednesday 14 September at 9.50 pm – 10.40 pm IST.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
