After a long time, Uflex represented as a brand altogether at Indiaplast 2019 exhibition as all the 7 divisions of the company participated in the show. The strength of Uflex is its backward integration. The end product is printed laminates but apart from that, the company makes inks, adhesives, gravure printing cylinders, flexo plates, printing machines, lamination machines, different types of films and many other machines for packaging applications.

Uflex Cylinders Division launches metallic dies

The most important aspect of our participation this time around is environmental sustainability. There is a lot of misinterpretation about multi-layer laminated packaging. People think it is not recyclable. However, we are giving practical evidence to visitors at the show that multi-layered laminated flexible packaging film is recyclable though its constituents are various kinds of films, aluminum foil, inks and adhesives,” says Sachin Dahake, deputy general manager – Marketing, Cylinders Division of Uflex.

The cylinder and flexo division of the company launched metallic dies at Indiaplast 2019. “We can make metallic dyes using flatbed and rotary dies as well. The common use of metallic dies is in the label industry. Printers find extensive use of metallic dies in hot foil stamping. They can use these dies for transfering metal from the foil to the stock. Basically, it is a combined effect of applying temperature and pressure. It gives a distinct look to the label besides working as a security feature. It is extremely popular now-a-days and is in great demand,” Dahake says.

Uflex Chemicals Business launches its new adhesive

The chemicals business of Uflex launched new products for flexible packaging, including the universal laminating solvent-less adhesive 777 A&C which is mixed in a 1:1 ratio and works perfectly for all the products. This has esecially been designed for high-speed lamination machines. The machine has been indegeneously developed for the R&D center. “One need not change the mixing ratios for different structures and it works extremely well with metallized films, which is very fast and we’re getting good leads to simplify convertors’ processes which in turn can save a lot of time. In addition, we’re launching sheetfed UV inks. This product was launched as a part of our strategy to expand our portfolio. We’re working aggresively at the qualification of water-based inks as well,” says Rajesh Srivastava, vice president – Sales & Marketing, Chemicals Business of Uflex.

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.
