For the first time, Toppan is participating in ProPak MENA 2023, the international packaging and processing technology event, due to be held at the Egypt International Exhibition Center in Cairo from 28 to 30 May. ProPak MENA is one of the most comprehensive large-scale packaging-related expos in the African region.
Established in Tokyo in 1900, Toppan is a global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions. Toppan sees Africa and the Middle East as vital growth markets for flexible packaging and participating in ProPak MENA will be an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of GL BARRIER and Toppan’s global converting business as well as to drive further expansion, the company said.
This year, Toppan will present GL BARRIER transparent barrier film and other Toppan Group packaging and film solutions to packaging producers and end-users.
Products on show at ProPak MENA 2023
GL BARRIER and related barrier packaging
GL BARRIER is Toppan’s proprietary range of transparent barrier films. With world-class barrier performance enabled by unique vapor deposition and coating technologies and an extensive lineup for diverse applications, GL BARRIER is a leading brand recognized in markets throughout the world, including Japan, Europe, the Americas, and Asia.
At ProPak MENA, Toppan will present its film products as well as barrier packaging in the form of microwavable packaging and paper-based composite containers.
Mono-material barrier packaging
As a new addition to the GL BARRIER lineup, Toppan has developed packaging that delivers excellent performance in terms of barrier properties and other characteristics while employing mono-material compositions, such as polypropylene (PP) or polyethylene (PE), rather than laminating multiple materials to fulfill different roles. The superior suitability for recycling of these packaging materials has been recognized by multiple European recyclability assessment bodies.
Toppan will showcase the Toppan Group’s packaging production locations throughout the world and its global sales network at ProPak MENA.
