At PrintPack India, Chemline launched hot-melt adhesives for pressure-sensitive applications. “Chemline is a brand name and a brand has to be present at shows like PrintPack. So our objective was to make our presence felt in a big way here, in addition to meeting various customers at a single touch point. We have enhanced our brand name as well as launched some new products at the exhibition. Our objective of being in touch with machine manufacturers and potential customers have also been well achieved at the show,” said Ravindra Goel, managing director of Chemline.

“In terms of new products, we have launched hot-melt adhesives in small pillow forms for pressure-sensitive applications. Pressure-sensitive hot-melt adhesives have applications in hygiene products, WPP bags and many more. Until now in India, hot-melt adhesives were available only in cake form,” he continued.

FujifilmAccording to Goel, the main advantage of hot-melt adhesives in small pillow forms is that it melts far easily compared to hot-melt adhesives in large cake forms. Pillow form can increase the production speed as well as product quality to a significant level. Another advantage of the pillow form is that unlike cake forms, no human intervention is needed in the production as well as application level, which means better, hygienic and clean products. “We started manufacturing the pillow forms a month back, but it is at the exhibition that we are displaying it for the first time. We have received a very good response for this product,” shared Goel. At the exhibition, Chemline also launched a new grade of dry-lamination adhesive—the DL5000x25x—for metpet, which is comparatively more economical and offers higher mileage and better bonding.

Speaking about new trends, Goel said, “In packaging adhesives, water-based and solvent-based adhesives are gradually being replaced by hot-melt adhesives. Solvent-based adhesives lead to an increased level of pollution while water-based adhesives take a higher setting time. And this is the reason why we came up with a wide range of hot-melt adhesives.”

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.
