Toyo Ink to present food-grade metal coatings and inks

Toyo Ink at Cannex & Fillex, 15-18 May


Toyochem Co. Ltd., Toyo Ink Co. Ltd. and Jiangmen Toyo Ink Co. Ltd., all member companies of the Toyo Ink Group of Japan, will be jointly exhibiting at Cannex & Fillex Asia Pacific 2018, from 15 to 18 May, in Guangzhou, China. At Stand 1326, the group will present a complete range of metal packaging manufacturing technologies with a focus on food safety and compliance, at its first ever Cannex & Fillex, a major international exhibition for metal packaging manufacturing and filling technologies.

At this year’s show, brand owners and canmakers looking to enhance the performance of metal packaging coatings can learn more about Toyochem’s FinishesT series of can coatings for metal substrates. The group will also feature its next-generation lineup of sustainable metal packaging solutions, including BPA-NI interior coatings for food and beverage cans, water-based coil coatings, UV-curable surface coatings, and interior and exterior coatings for general-use cans.

Visitors to the stand will also see how the group’s comprehensive portfolio of metal decorating inks can help them meet increasing food packaging compliance requirements with energy-efficient UV technologies.

At the show, Toyo Ink, a frontrunner in the development of LED UV metal deco technology, will debut an industry-leading line of LED-curable inks for general package printing applications—the MD KINGT LED series. In addition, an expanded portfolio of low-migration inks for food packaging applications will be on display, featuring the EXC 21000 M STERACANT FOOD series of Swiss Ordinance-compliant, UV-curable inks and the MD KINGT LED LM series of LED-curable inks that comply with the Nestlé and Swiss Ordinance guidelines.

Rounding out the group’s complete lineup of metal decorating solutions are the MD KING UV series of UV-curable inks for general package printing, the NEW MD KINGT TH / AH series of highly processed solvent-based inks for metal sheet printing, and the MD KINGT DIM inks for DI cans.

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.
