Gujarat-based Goldcoin Angel CPP Film is a part of the Goldcoin group founded by Ashvin Pansuria and Ramesh Tilara in 2005. The group manufactures a wide range of products mainly in protective packaging and insulation and is ISO 9001:2000 Certified & HVAC certified. With a workforce of over 1000, 5 manufacturing facilities, three fabrication units, two trading houses, and one marketing office, the group is marching ahead rapidly; growth is inevitable. 

Goldcoin Angel is a joint venture with Angel Products Company -Thailand to produce 10,000 MT per annum of flexible films for food packaging in their state-of-the-art plant. In a recent quality enhancement move, they have installed a high-end Vetaphone corona treater on their production line in Rajkot. The installed system working width is 2200mm and is designed to run at 300 meters per minute.

Vetaphone corona treater ensures long-lasting quality print

Vetaphone, Denmark, was founded by Verner Easby, who invented Corona treatment and established the company in 1951. Corona treatment increases the surface energy of plastic films, foils, and paper to improve the wettability and adhesion of inks, coatings, and adhesives. Polymer films have chemically inert and non-porous surfaces with low surface tensions making them non-receptive to bonding with substrates, printing inks, coatings, and adhesives. A quality corona treatment is necessary to ensure perfect print quality and obtain a flawless and long-lasting print. 

Commenting on the Vetaphone installation, Bhavesh Tilara, Director of Goldcoin Angel CPP films, said, “At Goldcoin, to deliver the ultimate quality, we invest in the best available equipment globally. Vetaphone being the inventors of corona treatment, has been delivering quality treaters to renowned OEMs around the world; it was natural to prefer this state of art treater that would enhance the quality of our films and an advantage for our customers”.

The sale and installation of this Vetaphone corona treater have been handled by Vetaphone’s exclusive Indian agents Weldon Celloplast, New Delhi. Weldon is a solutions supplier to the label and packaging industry. They represent leading internationally renowned suppliers of equipment, tooling, and consumables

Kanwardeep Sahni, managing director of Weldon, says, “Gold coin is a fast-growing group and for them to opt for Vetaphone was a natural exercise opting for the universally acclaimed product that would enhance the print quality of their films delivering additional value to their customers.”


The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
