Non-PVC tamper-evident film introduced

Madico Graphic Films, a leading UK supplier of specialist pressure sensitive, coated film products for durable label applications, has introduced (in the last week of April 2009), a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly destructible polyolefin labelstock designed to offer improved benefits in security marking applications such as asset tracking labels and security seals.
Once applied, the non-PVC, 70 micron, matt-white label is extremely difficult to peel off and offers excellent tamper-evident qualities, even when applied to low energy surfaces. Upon attempted removal, the material fractures easily, preventing subsequent re-application. The destructible polyolefin label delivers additional security thanks to a coating of pigmented adhesive, which adds opacity and ensures additional contamination of the surface layer, if label removal is attempted.

Madico’s destructible polyolefin is pen writable and features a superior matt topcoating to enable high-resolution conventional and variable data printing via thermal transfer. The extremely hard-wearing top-coat, offers high levels of abrasion and chemical resistance, thereby preventing variable data manipulation.

In addition, as a less expensive alternative to other labelstocks, but with the same performance properties, Madico’s destructible polyolefin represents an economical option for label printers and converters. Further benefits are afforded thanks to the product’s high tensile strength, which enables easy waste removal on press. Unlike other polyolethin products on the market, Madico’s offering delivers consistent high-quality and easy convertibility.

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.
