At drupa 2016, MSFL will unveil its entire range of graphic lamination films in BOPP, PET and Nylon

Max Speciality Films (MSFL) was the second company in India to enter the field of BOPP films in 1990. In the last 25 years, lamination films from MSFL’s state-of-the-art plant near Chandigarh have gained global recognition across a wide field of applications – book covers, photo albums, magazines, post cards, brochures and lamination of perfumes, spirits, jewellery and luxury bag.

At drupa 2016, MSFL will unveil its entire range of graphic lamination films in BOPP, PET and Nylon. The portfolio named Super Effects comprises two distinct varieties – Elite and Classic. Elite represents the premium line of value-added lamination films, each one with customized features. Performance and optics enhance the appearance of substrates to achieve the super effect one is looking for. Classic is the more traditional range for virtually all lamination applications.

Multiple super effects are possible, such as digital films in gloss and matte finish with significantly higher bond strength than conventional films for superior adhesion to digital printing, dark backgrounds or dense ink types; super silk film, which is a high matte film with extraordinary smoothness and silky feel and scuff resistance for luxury brands – the tactile feel enlivens both prints and colors; scuff free film – a special matte film with properties that resist abrasion and scratching; linen film, which has a BOPP based pre-embossed texture; holographic film, which is available in two versions – transparent and metallic and offers exceptional bonding with the substrate; glueable and stampable film, which is ideal for post lamination, hot foil stamping and gluing applications; and nylon film, which works as a preservative, keeping prints curl free and untarnished over time.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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.
