UFlex’s chemicals division focused on a range of sustainable solutions at the Asia Coat & Ink Show 2022 in Mumbai – promoting its water-based, solvent, and solvent-less inks, adhesives, and varnishes and coatings for various packaging printing technologies, including CI flexo and sheetfed offset. It also talked about radiation-curable inks at the event held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre.

The UFlex chemicals division, which was established in 1994, started as Flex Chemicals. It pledged to promote green initiatives, some of which include the development of water-based adhesives and inks, water conservation, the reduction of hazardous waste, energy conservation, reduction of water air, and ground pollution, and reduction of carbon footprint.

UFlex’s chemical division has a vast range of products that include solvent-based, solvent-free, and water-based laminating adhesives, gravure and flexo inks, radiation curable inks, specialty chemicals, coating and printers, and ink binders.

Company officials present at the show said they were working on advanced LED technology and water-based solutions. A lot of samples of packaging applications using UFlex’s chemical solutions were displayed at the stand.

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.
