Brilliant Polymers’ winning entry, Brilliant H266 along with its respective hardener is a solvent-based two component polyurethane laminating adhesive for flexible packaging and industrial applications. Brilliant H266 offers high green and cured bond strength and optical clarity, as well as excellent heat and chemical resistance properties. This product has very quickly captured the solvent base market and is very highly appreciated by the converters in flexible packaging industry.

Brilliant S715 is a moisture curing single component solvent-free polyurethane adhesive for flexible packaging, graphic arts and other industrial applications. Brilliant S715 offers good bond strength and optical clarity, as well as good heat and chemical resistance properties. It adheres to a wide range of printed and unprinted substrates and is specifically designed for lamination of paper and board to aluminum foil and printed or unprinted films. The single component solvent-free adhesive has also quickly won over the customers and has captured the market in very less time.

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 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.
