Polyonics to exhibit barcode label and tag materials

Labelexpo India Stand B3

Polyonics will launch a range of new barcode label and tag materials at Labelexpo India 2016

At Labelexpo 2016, Polyonics will launch a range of new barcode label and tag materials. The company will display ID and tracking applications used in the PCB and hot metal industries. The all new XF-731 and XF735 thermal transfer printable polyimide label materials include ultra-durable topcoats designed to resist harsh highly active fluxes used in the PCB industry. The semi-gloss white top coats produce high contrast, lasting barcode images that resist softening, will not yellow at elevated temperatures and provide high abrasion resistance. The materials also include liners for diecutting and ultrastrong, pressure-sensitive adhesives that resist high-pressure washes. The XF735 is also ESD-Safe and complies with the IEC 61340 and JEDEC 625B standards for charged insulators used in the proximity of ESD-sensitive devices.

In addition, the company will introduce the Polyonics XF-608 and XF-610 barcode tag materials for tracking hot metals. The XF-608 is a 227 μm durable paper laminate that operates continuously at 200 degree C with short term exposures up to 300 degree C. It produces high contrast barcodes with a variety of ribbons and provides increased tear resistance compared with other tag materials. The XF-610 is a double-sided 125 μm polyimide tag material rated for an operating temperature of 400 deg C and short exposures up to 600 deg C. The material provides high tear and abrasion resistances, has a gloss white coating on one side and matte white on the other and is primary tag used to track hot metals from furnace to customer delivery.

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 growing 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!
