Archroma, in specialty chemicals towards sustainable solutions, will participate in the 2022 edition of Paperex to present its latest innovations and solution systems aimed to help packaging and paper manufacturers to optimize productivity and/or create value in their markets.

Archroma provides expertise in the management of whiteness, coloration, special coatings and strength for all kinds of packaging and papers. The company offers a focused product range, as well as application services from its paper experts around the globe to enhance both the optical and functional properties of packaging, paper and tissue.

The company recently launched two innovations – Cartaseal VWAF, a PFC-free and ammonia-free barrier for odorless paper-based food packaging, and a new grade in its Appretan NTR range of water-based polymeric binders based on renewable natural ingredients.

  • Breaking News, a system for optimized production of odorless high-quality paper newsprint grades and lower chemical load.
  • Bright N’Safe is a system that brings together high whiteness & brightness with food safety for FDA compliant packaging, with improved control and reduced slowdowns in production.
  • Clean Felt, is a system for increased productivity and spotless paper, even with a higher share of recycled pulp.
  • Clean Machine, a system for stickies control on the paper and on the machine, for reduced downtime in production and the ability to use lower quality raw materials and reduce costs.
  • Hold Tight, a system for improved fiber retention and bonding… to create paper that performs cycle after cycle – and to conserve our forests.
  • Nature Bound, is a compostable binder system for food filtration materials that protect you and the planet (with the new Appretan NTR).
  • Pack it Clean, a PFC-free barrier system giving more opportunities for odorless food packaging that is easier to recycle and compost, and is safer for you and for the planet (with the new Cartaseal VWAF).
  • Print it Brite, a system that makes our paper whiter and brighter, our prints sharper and more vibrant, and the production more efficient.
  • Run Faster, a system for improved paper drainage, higher machine speeds and increased productivity.
  • Smart White, a system to optimize production even at the highest whiteness level for high quality paper, and less resource usage.

“We believe that we can help transform our industries by providing solutions that bring value, including sustainable value, whilst optimizing costs and resource utilization in production,” comments Jyotsana Shrivastava, senior vice-president, Paper and Packaging Specialties, at Archroma in India. “Visitors at our booth will be able to explore cutting-edge performance and coloration that the growing consumer demand for products that are safer for people and kinder to the environment.”

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 Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
