Manufacturer of release coatings and adhesive films for the pressure-sensitive industry, Dow, will launch the SL 184 SYL-OFF SL 184 coating at Labelexpo India 2022 at its stand E3.

A key focus for Dow’s pressure-sensitive market involves delivering silicone-based solutions that meet customer needs by optimizing performance, and improving efficiency across a variety of applications.

The SL 184 SYL-OFF SL 184 releases coating for high-speed die cutting and label dispensing, releases coating for pressure sensitive laminates, non-stick packaging and coatings for liners of technical adhesive tapes.

The many benefits of SL 184 SYL-OFF SL 184 are fast curing, providing extremely stable release; low release force at both low and high peel speeds.

The SL 184 SYL-OFF SL 184 is especially efficient in mist reduction as it minimizes the mist at a very high line speed. It is also solvent free, which enables it to be used at low prothrombin time levels and it is flexible in formulation.

The company will also promote the SYL-OFF SL 184 high-speed coating, SYL-OFF EM 7978 food-release coating, SYL-OFF SL 351 hygiene-release coating, DOWSIL 2014 adhesive solvent less PSA, DOWSIL 7651 and 7652 adhesives for protective films and tapes, at the show.

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 to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
