Adhesion, clarify, convertibility

UPM

UPM Raflatac has expanded its range of adhesives for low-temperature food labeling (as low as -15°C) with the launch of its RP48 acrylic adhesive for the Southeast Asia market.
With good adhesion as well as good clarity and smooth convertibility, RP48 is also an attractive option for labeling food packages stored in cold and frozen conditions (as low as -40°C).

Low-temperature food packaging that will be labeled and stored in frozen or moist conditions, usually at 0°C or colder, often presents challenges for brand owners and packers. Hotmelt adhesives are typically used to label foods stored in these conditions
but can suffer from limited clarity and convertibility.

RP48 performs well at low temperature, and excels at frozen conditions, in particular, ensuring labels on food packaging remain firmly in place and retain their shelf appeal. Furthermore, it offers good clarity when used with clear film faces and improves the stability and efficiency of the converting and dispensing processes. RP48 can be paired with UPM Raflatac PP Matt White TC 80 or UPM Raflatac PP Clear TC 50 film face materials.

Selecting the right adhesive for the label is an essential step towards its success. Whether the label needs to stick permanently, wash-off or peeland-reseal, UPM Raflatac has a pressure-sensitive adhesive that will meet the needs.

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!
