Microban International will be showcasing its wide range of unique antimicrobial technologies for plastic and rubber materials, as well as launching two exciting next-generation products based on non-heavy-metal ingredients – LapisShield and Ascera. LapisShield can be seamlessly integrated into any water-based coating formulation, and is proven to inhibit bacterial growth by up to 99.99 %, as well as the growth of mold and mildew.

Ascera represents Microban’s commitment to sustainable antibacterial chemistries for molded polymers and solvent-based coatings, formulated from a chemistry that is inspired by nature*. These exclusive new technologies therefore help to protect treated rubber and plastic surfaces from stains, odors and premature degradation, prolonging their useable lifetime and supporting reuse and sustainability.

Microban International is thrilled to be attending K 2022, the world’s number one tradeshow for the plastics and rubber industry. The packed event is taking place from the 19th to 26th of October at Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, and will host more than 3,000 exhibitors from over 60 nations.

K-Talk, K’s new web talk format, is hosting monthly online discussions in the run up to this year’s show, featuring global industry experts and scientists. The in-depth series focuses on plastics, technological innovations and the key challenges facing the industry, and aims to inspire, orientate and encourage international exchange in this important area. Microban’s very own Dr Ivan Ong, Vice President of Research and Development, joined the K-Talk panel on the 1st of September to explore the latest innovations for extending the usable lifespan of plastic packaging. You can listen to the recording of this fascinating discussion on the official K website.

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.
