Brilliant Polymers commissions new reactor


Brilliant Polymers has commissioned a new 32 ton reactor at its manufacturing site in Ambernath, Maharashtra. The company is one of the India’s leading suppliers and exporters of laminating adhesives for flexible packaging and currently produces over 14,000 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 to 20,000 tons per year. “We intend to increase our market share in India and in exports markets; our investments in capacity underline our commitment to the flexible packaging industry. Despite strong headwinds on raw materials, with unprecedented price levels on key materials like TDI and MDI, we continue to grow and strengthen our presence in the market. With the new capacity coming online in February 2018 and with our strong promise of Technology, Quality and Service with every supply, we are confident of moving into a leading position in India” says Gaurav Talwar, managing director, Brilliant Polymers Pvt. Ltd.

With its innovative range of products, Brilliant has seen robust 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 Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
