243

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 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 Asia.is 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.
