Flexible packaging materials and solution major Uflex Limited displayed a range of anti-counterfeiting and brand protection solutions at Gulf Print & Pack held at World Trade Centre, Dubai from 26 to 29 March 2017.

On display at Uflex’s stand will be a big assortment of holographic wide web films including soft embossing; fresnel lens and sterling lens embossed, hard embossing; UV embossing; high refractive index (HRI); and window de-metallized films. High refractive index film, also known as zinc metalized film, available in transparent variant will also be on display. This film is especially used for overlay or lamination on printed substrates.

Fresnel lens film on cartons offers unique, exclusive aesthetics associated with high-end premium products. The effect produced by (F1 & F2) fresnel lens is pegged as one of the most advanced security features for carrier films offering authentic and secured packaging solutions. Various industries such as automobiles, food, FMCG, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, etc. are the main consumers.

Holograms manufactured using various technologies like analog 2D/3D conventional; Dot matrix (up to 24,000 dpi); non-diffractive litho (up to 1,20,000 dpi) and E-Beam will also be seen at the Uflex stand. Visitors will also get to see increasingly popular products like holographic pouches, holographic strips, holographic scratch, holographic wads, and holographic shrink sleeves. Uflex will also show labeling solutions using foils, fresnel lens and holographic effects.

“There is a dark underbelly of counterfeiting that costs more than 2% of the global economic output, which turns out to be around US$ 1.8 trillion a year. Uflex remains steadfast and committed to come up with the most advanced and bespoke solutions to thwart any and every attempt of counterfeiting that looms over its clients globally,” Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex Limited commented on the growing global demand for anti-counterfeiting and brand protection solutions.

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.
