New Flexbon white solvent-less adhesive from Uflex' Chemical Business Unit

The Uflex Chemicals Business Unit a part of India’s largest fully integrated multinational flexible packaging materials and solution company, has launched a general-to-medium performance 2K solvent-less PU adhesive called FLEXBON 901A/901W. The new Flexbon solvent-less adhesive enables converters and brand owners to substantially improve flexible packaging performance while reducing their application costs.

The chemicals business of Uflex is a leading provider of adhesives, printing inks and coatings for a wide range of flexible packaging applications. The new Flexbon solvent-less white adhesive works well on existing solvent-less lamination machines and will reduce the requirement of white ink coating on printed substrates, thereby giving substantial savings to converters. This product is claimed to offer excellent opacity and wettability on metallized substrates. Other key features include good adhesion, suitability for low temperature applications (35 to 45 degrees C) and the ability to provide fast decay of primary aromatic amine. Talking about the new product, Rajesh Bhasin, joint president, Uflex Chemicals said, “This innovative and valued development substantially enhances our solvent-less adhesive portfolio. Given the myriad benefits that this adhesive brings for the convertors, we will market it globally. The demand is encouraging already.”

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
