PCR Film Procuct(Bags) from Flex Films

Flex Films, the global manufacturing arm of India’s largest flexible packaging materials and solutions company – UFlex Limited, is exhibiting its wide range of BOPET, CPP, BOPP, specialty, and green films, along with a miniature working model of a multi-layer plastics (MLP) recycling plant and a video screening of a recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) plant in action at Interpack, Dusseldorf. 

Flex Films is present at D44 in Hall number from 10 May 4 to 10, 2023. 

Both these recycling plants have successfully demonstrated the company’s technical expertise in recycling multi-layer plastic and PCR waste over the last three decades. In addition, the company is displaying a wide array of injection molded products made from MLP recycled waste. 

The company is exhibiting rPET films made from recycled PET resin with printed widths of 210 cm. A specialty product from Flex Films at Interpack 2023 includes BOPE opaque films, known for their durability and cost-effectiveness. Visitors will be free to cut out an A4 sample from these BOPE rolls to experience its quality and durability. 

Other films on display include BOPET films with high tensile strength, durability, and heat-resistance properties, which also have good gas-barrier features. In addition, BOPP films with high gloss and excellent clarity are being exhibited, including UBB-M (ultra-high barrier), UHB-M (EVOH Met with High OD), B-UTX UTX (ultra-high barrier Alox BOPP film, both sides treated), B-TUH-M MET with high seal strength (1.5 kgs), High Barrier MET BOPP with Low SIT and TAF (SIT 12 anti-fog).

Flex Films has recently been conferred the 2023 Silver Award in the Technical Innovation category by the Flexible Packaging Association (FPA), US, for developing Ultra High Barrier and High Metal Bond Metallized Polyester Films. 

Over the years, Flex Films has bagged several national and international certifications for its technological innovations and environmental sustainability. From BOPET films to BOPP films to CPP films to metalized and Alox-coated films, Flex Films is a forerunner in technical innovation and operational capabilities.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
