Avery Dennison showcased an expanded automotive toolkit at its stand during FESPA 2019. Additions to the range included three new Supreme Wrapping Film colors, a new option for paint protection and a comprehensive range of auto electric window films.

Oliver Guenther, senior director – Marketing and Channel Strategy, said that emotional appeal and ‘wow’ factor were the driving forces behind the three new bold and seductive Supreme Wrapping Film colors. “These gloss and satin metallic additions to our flagship wrap range take us to well over 100 different colors, offering installers an enormous breadth of creative choices – with color matching also available for special projects. As with all films in the range, the benefits include superb conformability, repositionability, and slideability, saving valuable installation time, and excellent long-term removability,” Guenther added.

The new colors in the range are SWF Gloss Metallic Fun Purple, SWF Gloss Metallic Passion Red, and SWF Satin Metallic Energetic Yellow. For users who want to protect their vehicle’s paint against many of the challenges of the road, and maintain peak value, Avery Dennison is launching a medium- to long-term Pure Defense Series that complements the existing Supreme Protective Films Series.

“Our premium Supreme Protection Film XI (SPF-XI) is an outstanding option for damage prevention, with an ambient temperature ‘self-healing’ topcoat and up to 10 years’ UV resistance. It sets a ‘gold standard’ for ease of installation and vehicle looks and longevity. This new Pure Defense Series is a welcome addition, opening up new markets by offering a cost-effective solution to protecting both vulnerable areas on vehicles and also high-wear areas in premises, such as reception desks. It also up to 8 years’ durability on vertical surfaces,” Guenther explained.

Completing the range of automotive solutions is the new Avery Dennison Automotive Window Films portfolio – three different ranges for solar protection, occupant’s comfort and extra passenger privacy.

“This is a major new set of films for installers, allowing them to fine-tune all aspects of vehicle window appearance, thermal performance and safety. All of the films in these ranges allow installers to select the appropriate light transmission levels for their particular application,” Guenther said.

Avery Dennison AWF HP Pro is a premium automotive window film range that offers outstanding shrinkage performance, quick drying time and ease of handling, along with the superior solar performance that comes with four visible light transmission levels. Avery Dennison AWF HP is a cost-effective film range that also offers good solar performance. Adding protection from shattered glass is made possible by using Avery Dennison AWF HP Safety.

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.
