Pune, India, 28 March 2022, HB Fuller will showcase several innovations that address growing trends in sustainable consumer goods and eCommerce packaging at Printpack India 2022 at the Expo Centre in Greater Noida from 26 to 30 May 2022.

HB Fuller’s new food-safe solution, sold under the Swift tak brand, addresses the increasing demand for paper straws for a variety of end-use applications in the foodservice, institutional, and residential industries, which are projected to spur this market upwards, globally. Moreover, increased consumer demand for low-impact straws, upcoming government reform, and the many campaigns to ban single-use plastic are expected to contribute to the expansion of paper straws in our everyday life.

Additionally, HB Fuller will introduce a metallocene range of solutions for bookbinding applications. Its metallocene-based hot melt adhesives offer several advantages in the production process and end-use applications, such as lower coat weight, increased adhesion strength and robust temperature resistance. This improved adhesion also contributes to prolong the product’s life and ensure durability. Another example of this technology is that it enables the recyclability of books and reduces adhesive consumption, which are important factors for the graphic arts industry.

As more people shop online, merchants and manufacturers will need high-performing adhesives and hassle-free, sustainable packaging. Therefore, the company will showcase innovative solutions for e-commerce packaging through a complete line of pressure-sensitive adhesives under the Swift melt brand that enables the bonding of tough substrates for a variety of applications, including pressure-sensitive tapes or labels, container labelling, and courier bag applications. HB Fuller’s global, one-stop provider for eCommerce packaging solutions and its team of experts can assist manufacturers in streamlining processes and creating packaging that will improve the customer experience, while keeping products safe throughout the supply chain.

In addition, the company will demonstrate how its reinforcement and opening tapes portfolio can help improve the performance of corrugated and folding carton packaging. These tape technologies can reduce damage or add functionality, creating better performing boxes and packages. The range of starch additives under the Fullrez and Cor-Weld brands, can augment water-resistance to many types of packaging products, while improving board quality, and reducing waste.

Visit HB Fuller at Hall 9B, Stand F22, at the India Expo Center, Greater Noida, in the Delhi National Capital Region, between May 26-30, to learn more about how adhesives, combined with superior technical capabilities, can provide an industry competitive advantage by enhancing the manufacturing process and business performance.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
