“We are once again eager to participate in RadTech Europe to introduce our most recent resins and photoinitiators for energy-curable systems,” said Magdalena Doherty, general manager at Sartomer EMEA. “In addition to discussing innovative offerings that enable exceptional freedom of performance design, our scientists are presenting on the latest technological developments for UV, LED, excimer, and EB curing.”

Sartomer’s featured products 

Sarbio high-performance acrylate oligomer and monomer resins based on renewable raw materials to help our customers meet their sustainability goals.

Structured urethane acrylate resins, a new class of acrylated urethane oligomers to help enhance and expand end properties of cured materials, together with a fast time-to-market development concept. 

New specialty low-migration photoactive liquid resin designed for indirect food contact applications. Ideal for flexible packaging, direct to pack, labels, and folded carton and board. A new formulation approach will be introduced using photoactive acrylate via photoinitiating moieties into the resin backbone.

New LED-curable liquid thioxanthone photoinitiator Speedcure LTX enables high photoinitiator/resin compatibility and provides better solubility than traditional solid photoinitiators. It features very desirable overall properties and is particularly suitable for low-viscosity applications.

Specialty oligomers and monomers for UV/LED/EB and excimer-curable coatings. Performance advantages of this technology include special surface effects such as ultra-gloss or matte effects. These materials are ideal for automotive, construction, flooring, and other demanding consumer goods applications.

Resins enhance the dielectric performance of conformal coatings, which are thin, transparent polymeric coatings applied to the surface of printed circuit boards and other electronic components. These resins provide performance advantages, including protection from the end-use environment, adhesion to substrates and electronic components, low dielectric loss, and improved mechanical properties.

N3xtDimension building blocks and additives for UV-curable 3D printing, a unique toolbox of specialty oligomers, monomers, cationic resins, and photoinitiators, as well as the possibility to tailor-make solutions to customers’ specific needs. A focus on developing easier characterization methods for elasticity and evaluation of new elastomer materials will be introduced.

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.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
