Ipanema White with X-Dry technology and SH9020 adhesive

Having introduced Ipanema embossed self-adhesive paper back in 2018 as part of the wine lovers collection, which was designed especially for the premium wine-making sector, Fedrigoni Group is now expanding the versatility of this self-adhesive paper by combining it with recently developed new technologies.

Ipanema White is a pure chlorine-free natural paper with a textured surface. Thanks to the specific treatment added to the paper mixture, Ipanema offers the same performance as a barrier paper in the presence of condensation and humidity, but without the inconvenience of any rigidity that is given by a barrier.

With the embossed technique making this self-adhesive paper a tactile experience as well as visually appealing, the printing versatility makes this a perfect solution for the labeling of premium brands to exude luxury and sophistication. Thanks to the addition of the new X-Dry technology, Ipanema White X-Dry FSC is particularly a great partner for labels produced in the wine and spirits sector where label appeal plays a pivotal role in capturing the attention of the buyer. It is also vitally important that the label maintains that appeal right through the chilling process until the last drop is taken. The X-Dry technology was specifically designed to preserve the initial label opacity and integrity after being exposed to extreme temperature changes in the fridge and ice bucket. Combined with a permanent acrylic adhesive SH-9020, it is said to be the ideal solution for all premium products requiring high-performing labels.

 

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!
