UFlex innovates packaging

UFlex, an Indian company specialising in flexible packaging solutions and polymer sciences, has launched a number of new solutions this year.

In the quarter ended September 30, 2022, UFlex has launched a wide range of advanced solutions across business segments to meet the ever-changing needs of its customers.

This includes Flexseal Ecocoat, an eco-friendly aqueous dispersion application coating specially designed for the inner side of paper cups as a replacement for PE coating.

It claims Flexseal Ecocoat offers excellent heat-seal properties. The coating is primarily used on paper-board for paper cups via gravure or an air knife application process. It contributes to sustainability by enabling easy recycling of paper products, post consumption.

It has also launched the Flexcure Nutri series, designed especially for food packaging, pharmaceutical and hygiene applications demanding low migration and odour. It can be applied to a wide range of plastic materials and other substrates (including lacquered aluminum). It is suitable for processing with all in-line types of UV Flexo label or packaging printing.

There is also a special high-barrier packaging format that prevents degradation and preserves the natural properties of its contents while increasing its shelf life. It claims the product provides ultra-high barrier against moisture, gases, UV rays, and extends the shelf life of the product’s contents by preventing it from oxidative degeneration and delays bacterial growth.
