Astra Chemtech, one of the leading manufacturers of water-based adhesives and hot melt adhesives, will exhibit for the first time at Printpack India 2019 in Greater Noida. The company also manufactures textile binders, waterproofing materials, and varnishes. It started manufacturing water-based adhesives since 2000 and started production of hotmelt adhesives last year.

Its manufacturing facilities are located at MIDC Tarapur, in Maharashtra. The hotmelt plant is spread across 2200 square meters (25,000 square feet built-up area) with a manufacturing capacity of 5000 MTPA. Besides, the company also has a 3300 square meter (50,000 square feet built-up area) factory for manufacturing water-based adhesives with an installed capacity of 24,000 MTPA. In addition, Astra manufactures solvent-based adhesives, PU-based adhesives and UV varnishes.


Its water-based adhesives and water-based PSAs have been in the market for the past 18-20 years. At Printpack, the company will demonstrate most of its solutions offered to the printing and packaging industries. It also looks to use this opportunity to highlight its strengths in the hotmelt segment. This is Astra’s first participation at Printpack 2019 and it aims to meet as many potential customers as possible at the event.

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 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.
