Sample product lamination from Max Super Speciality Films

Noida-based Max Speciality Films Limited will be showcasing a variety of solutions at PrintPack 2017. The company will unveil top-of-the-line BOPP, PET and nylon-based graphic lamination films. The Max Super Effects portfolio comprises two distinct varieties—Elite and Classic. While Elite represents the premium line of lamination films with customized value-additions, Classic is the more traditional range for virtually all lamination applications.

Multiple super-effects are possible which include the embossed range—BOPP-based pre-embossed textures such as linen, alu brush, sand and leather, digital films in gloss and matt finish with significantly higher bond strength than conventional films for superior adhesion to digital prints, dark backgrounds or dense ink types. Some other super-effects include the super silk film, which is a high matt film; the scuff-free film, which is a special matt film with properties that resist abrasion and scratching; and the nylon film wand super gloss film, which is PET based with high gloss and suitable for lamination of digital prints.

All these solutions have been developed in the company’s state-of-the-art research and development lab, a DSIR-certified and BRCAA grade accredited facility. The vast range of lamination films, developed by Max Speciality Films Limited, are being used in applications such as book covers, photo albums, magazines, brochures, perfume and jewellery boxes and luxury bags.

Max will be at stationed in Hall 7, Stand D-11 at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida.

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!
