Flex Films at interpack 2017

Hall 10 Stand D-44


Flex Films, the global film manufacturing arm of flexible packaging materials and solution company Uflex, will be exhibiting its myriad innovations in the field of film manufacturing at interpack 2017. At the mega event the company will have six zones: Sustainability, Speciality, Lidding, Barrier, PP (OPP & CPP) Family and Aesthetics, and Anti-Counterfeiting.


Sustainability holds a special place in all business operations of Flex Films. Strong emphasis is laid on fostering down-gauging, light-weighting, reduction at source and design optimization in all its creations. Some of the major highlights of this zone will be recycled polyester film; oxo and bio-degradable films and green polyester film (Green PET) among others. This film has been internationally honored for its sustainability quotient.


This zone will showcase the latest innovations like Twist (TST); Shrink (SPH); Easy Stackable (ESB); Digital Printing (PDP); UV Curable (UVC); Electronic Goods Wrapping (MTG-AS-B/M) Film; Special Polyester Film for Alu-Alu pharma laminate; and Easy Tear (IET) Films. One of the much sought after substrates that will be on display at Interpack this time around is a special polyester film that has successfully replaced BOPA and PVC substrates from a typical Alu-Alu laminate used in pharma packaging thereby serving as a game changer.


Flex Films has engineered suitable substrates that pave the way for smooth and easy lid-opening. In the lidding section at Interpack the company will be displaying Isotropic (IST) and Peelable (TPA) films among several others. Isotropic (IST) Films are polyester substrates having balanced properties that ensure the film does not tear abruptly.


Flex Films has made substantive headway in engineering high barrier substrates. Some of these that can be seen at Interpack this time around are AlOx (PLX & PGX); Bag in Box (LBP-M); High Barrier MET PET (EBP – M) and Super Barrier Corona (PGB) Films among several others.

PP (OPP & CPP) Family

Flex Films also manufactures different variants of Oriented Polypropylene and Cast Polypropylene Films. Some of these films that will be on display at Interpack are: Ultra Barrier OPP (TUB-M); Low SIT (TLS); Anti-fog OPP (TAF); Retortable CPP (CPR); Deep Freeze CPP (CDF) and High Barrier CPP (C-CXB-PZ-M) Films.

High Barrier (C-CXB-PZ-M) is a metallized CPP film with metal deposition on the corona treated surface, while the other side being sealable. This film demonstrates a broad hot tack window, excellent barrier properties and low seal initiation temperature. The film finds extensive use in manufacturing packaging material for snacks and biscuits.

Aesthetics and anti-counterfeiting

interpackFlex Films will display Holographic and Fresnel Lens Embossed Films among other brand protection solutions. Other pigmented special effect films from the polyester and polypropylene families in high gloss and matte variants will also be seen at Flex Films’ stall at Interpack 2017.

Praising Messe Dusseldorf’s initiative of congregating all stakeholders of the converting and packaging industry under one roof, Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex Limited said, “The collective wealth of experience in terms of product innovation for the converting/packaging industry that will be on display at Interpack 2017 is truly praiseworthy. I am glad that Flex Films will be showcasing its most contemporary and innovative products for the global converting industry. After-all the art of converting starts with the science of manufacturing the film.”

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.
