H.B. Fuller to showcase adhesives for graphic arts – Hall 5 Stand C9A

H.B. Fuller’s high-performance based adhesives for the publishing, printing and packaging industries

At PrintPack India, H.B. Fuller plans to showcase various high-performance based adhesives that aptly fit the challenging needs of the publishing, printing and the packaging industry. With a net revenue of US$ 2.1 billion in FY 2015, H.B. Fuller is a leading adhesive supplier with a focus on sealants and specialty chemical products for critical demands across diverse verticals including electronic and assembly materials, paper converting, automotive and other businesses apart from packaging. 

For instance, Optipur Digital adhesive is a reactive hot melt adhesive that has been specifically designed for spine gluing and gluing-off operations, both for soft and hardcover books. Under extreme ambient conditions, its robust yet flexible properties enable high-quality reading experience while maintaining its outstanding page pull value across a range of papers, including those that are hard to bind like wood-free, glossy, high weight, matt-coated papers amongst others. Often, the quality of packaging suffers, not because of material quality but due to a unique combination of extreme ambient conditions and difficult to bond substrates. Within a few minutes after binding, a correct adhesive delivers a high bond quality and ensures book integrity along the conveyor belt for a quick trim and packing of straight-edged brochures and books. 

With its technical and R&D centres in the United States and Shanghai, the company has recently set up another R&D centre in Pune, linked to H.B. Fuller’s Lüneburg Adhesive Academy in Germany. Backed by this technology expertise, H.B. Fuller can respond to any local requirement within a given time frame. 

H.B. Fuller intends to leverage international trade shows such as PrintPack to demonstrate innovations that are within the reach of local converters, and its team of experts in graphic arts will be present to exchange experience and know-how with interested visitors.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
