H.B. Fuller, a leading global adhesives provider focusing on perfecting adhesives, sealants and other specialty chemical products to the packaging industry, will unveil two innovative, water-based adhesives for existing and new industries at Printpack India 2019. H.B. Fuller will display its products at India Expo Centre’s Hall 9, Stand F-7. Technical experts and business leaders from the company will be available for interaction and product demonstration during the show. H.B. Fuller believes that its innovative adhesive technologies will help manufacturers to enhance their products’ performance and quality, while increasing operational efficiency.

The company’s Swifttak 5625 is a revolutionary solution designed for excellent water resistance performance on corrugated side seam applications. Swifttak 5625 covers multiple applications and improves production efficiencies. This non-corrosive, non-abrasive water-based adhesive enables Indian manufacturers to achieve FEFCO 9 standards, and it makes less impact on equipment, reducing machine downtime and spare parts costs. It also helps deliver a strong side seam bond for all corrugating boards with kraftliner, testliner or carton. Additionally, Swifttak 5625’s approval for direct food contact makes this innovative adhesive ideal for the manufacturing of paper straws, an important new consumer product driven by increasing demand for greener, more sustainable products.

Swifttak 5580 is H.B. Fuller’s OEM-approved, water-based, side seam adhesive for folding cartons. It provides premium performance on contactless nozzle systems. Its high initial tack and minimal tailing at high speeds helps deliver rapid package integrity, and makes it ideal for high-speed application lines. Swifttak 5580 is suitable for a wide range of substrates used in the production of folding cartons.

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!
