The HB Fuller stand at Labelexpo India 2018 where the company displayed its trademark product for the Indian market, the Lunamelt PS 4015 hot-melt pressure sensitive adhesive.

HB Fuller, an adhesive manufacturing company, introduced its hot melt pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) during Labelexpo India 2018. The product works on a variety of substrates. The eCommerce industry in India is growing at a rapid pace and aith the increase in online shopping, courier bags have become a very important source of delivery. This in turn leads to a demand for safe and tamper-proof courier bags. India has 374 million internet subscribers and 1.17 billion mobile subscribers.

Contributing to this growing importance of courier bags, HB Fuller introduced Lunamelt PS 4015 sealing adhesive at the event. The hot melt adhesive was designed by the company’s German team. The adhesive has now been made available to the Indian market and is being produced in HB Fuller’s office at Pune, Maharashtra.

“Lunamelt PS 4015 is ideally suited to the Indian climate. The Indian conditions support the product to deliver excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates,” said a company spokesperson at the HB Fuller stand.

Developed for self-adhesive bonding of PE bags, this hot-melt PSA combines tack and adhesion properties with increased cohesion and temperature resistance. The PSA also supports foamed polystyrene, aluminum, paper and rock wool. This makes Lunamelt an ideal product for quick adhesion and also suitable for any tape or label product that requires high tack and quick grab.

Talking about the event, the spokesperson said, “We’re extremely happy with the show. We have even received a number of leads over the last two days and are expecting more in the following days. The demand for our new product has been phenomenal.”

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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
