Uflex launches new solvent-based laminating adhesive for flexible packaging

The Chemicals Business of Uflex has unveiled a general performance 2K solvent-based PU laminating adhesive under FLEXBON brand for food packaging and general applications.

Reducing the use of solvents is the prime driver behind Uflex creating the adhesive. The company launched the product commercially at its production unit, located in Noida.

FLEXBON 162R/162 is a general performance solvent-based product and can be used at higher application solids of between 45% and 50%. This is possible due to lower viscosity, which in turn allows reduced solvent consumption. This results in overall reduction in the cost of laminate and makes it more environment friendly.

The product has good wettability and solvent release during lamination apart from good adhesion on all metallized and non-metallized films.

Owing to its great potential globally, the Chemicals Business of Uflex plans to target both domestic and international markets with this offering.

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!
