Addressing sustainability

At Labelexpo Europe 2019, India’s Jindal Films introduced Label-Lyte LLC platform with a special OPP design that combines the characteristics of polyethylene (PE) like conformability, squeezability and flexibility with the inherent properties of OPP like stiffness, no elongation and transparency.

“With ongoing challenges to reduce the use of plastic to the minimum and make sure that the design of plastic packaging bottles supports the global effort and journey for a plastic circular economy, Jindal Films is proud to build on the success of its Label-Lyte LLC conformable and squeezable OPP,” said Denis Rousseau, global segment manager, Labels, Jindal Films.

The new Label-Lyte LLC platform provides brand owners with opportunities to reduce their use of plastic in existing packaging and make sure that it is recyclable where programs and facilities to collect and recycle plastic exist, according to the company. Label-Lyte LLC label can reduce the use of plastic by 40 % versus typical thicker polyethylene (PE) labels.

As a polyolefin, Label-Lyte LLC can be recycled on polyethylene or polypropylene (PP) containers where existing polyolefin recycling channels exist. According to the company, it can also be separated by flotation when applied on PET containers with an appropriate adhesive. Building on the success of the LLC210 clear and LLC247 white grades, Jindal Films will also showcase some new prototypes which have a soft touch matt coating.

The company is present in Hall 3, Stand C46.

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.
