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.

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.
