Jindal Films unveils Label-Lyte LLC platform at Labelexpo Europe 2019

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.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
