Noida-based Veekay Industries exhibited its water-based adhesives, lamination, emulsion, and coatings for industrial applications such as paper, textile, footwear, paint, printing, and packaging at PrintPack India 2022. It highlighted paper-based products such as paper cups, muffin pouches, paper plates, paper straws, and cutlery pouches coatings at the event.
The metalized film coating for gutkha pouches is also manufactured by the company but was not highlighted at the event. “The company’s products are all FDA approved by the SGS lab, and the products will not harm the environment or body,” said Amit Kumar Singla, director of Veekay Industries.
The company produces moisture barrier paper, which protects paper straws from not diluting in any drink, such as cold drinks or coffee. It also makes coatings for paper straws, which are now in high demand in the market. “The paper straw tensile strength depends on the coating and the gsm of the paper. If we take lower GSM paper, it will dilute in just 15-20 minutes, while the high GSM paper ranging will protect the straw and stand for around 48-72 hours. Furthermore, if we take even high GSM papers, the straw can stand for more than 72 hours,” said Singla.
“Everyone today wants recyclable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly things. Many enterprises that make paper bags are represented at this expo. We provide eco-friendly adhesives that align with the current trend for pasting these also,” he added.
At PrintPack, the company went through a great show experience and got a chance to meet the people after a long gap from the Covid-19. “Many printers and coaters approached our stand with many solid inquiries,” he concluded.
