UFlex’s chemicals division focused on a range of sustainable solutions at the Asia Coat & Ink Show 2022 in Mumbai – promoting its water-based, solvent, and solvent-less inks, adhesives, and varnishes and coatings for various packaging printing technologies, including CI flexo and sheetfed offset. It also talked about radiation-curable inks at the event held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre.

The UFlex chemicals division, which was established in 1994, started as Flex Chemicals. It pledged to promote green initiatives, some of which include the development of water-based adhesives and inks, water conservation, the reduction of hazardous waste, energy conservation, reduction of water air, and ground pollution, and reduction of carbon footprint.

UFlex’s chemical division has a vast range of products that include solvent-based, solvent-free, and water-based laminating adhesives, gravure and flexo inks, radiation curable inks, specialty chemicals, coating and printers, and ink binders.

Company officials present at the show said they were working on advanced LED technology and water-based solutions. A lot of samples of packaging applications using UFlex’s chemical solutions were displayed at the stand.

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.
