Brilliant Polymers has commissioned a new reactor at its manufacturing site in Ambernath, Maharashtra. The company is one of India’s leading suppliers and exporters of laminating adhesives for flexible packaging and currently produces over 16,000 tons of adhesive per annum at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. The new reactor coupled with other infrastructure and optimization projects will increase capacity from 20,000 to 22,000 tons per year. The new capacity will be primarily used to boost production of Brilliant’s recent innovations in solvent-free adhesive technology. Growth in usage of solvent-free in India has been healthy and customers are investing increasingly in solvent-free laminating machinery.

“We have a dominant share in the solvent-free laminating adhesive market in India and intend to grow our share further with new product launches. Customers are turning to solvent-free adhesives for more and more applications and we are innovating and providing them with new adhesives to meet evolving demands. Our new products come with our promise of Technology, Quality and Service with every supply. We are confident of consolidating and strengthening our leadership position in India,” says Gaurav Talwar, managing director, Brilliant Polymers Pvt. Ltd.

Brilliant S631 / S310 is an innovative solvent-free adhesive which has grown to become one of the largest selling solvent-free laminating adhesives in India. The product has unique properties and can be used for laminations involving metalized films as well as for laminations involving thin gauge polyethylene films, with a negligible impact on COF after lamination. The market has appreciated this innovative product. To add to the strength of S631, Brilliant is now offering this product in combination with a high performance hardener, S320. Brilliant S631 / S320 can be used for higher performance applications like tomato ketchup, heavy rice and flour bags, and also where a faster cure is required.

With its innovative range of products, Brilliant has seen healthy growth rates over the last five years. The company offers a complete range of solutions for the flexible packaging industry from standard performance to high performance applications. Its products are designed to provide unique properties and afford excellent levels of performance in terms of heat and chemical resistance, optical properties coupled with high initial tack and fast cure rates.

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 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.
