The company (Hall 6, stand A38) serves two broad application areas: security and decorative, and offers a vast range of products.
At Drupa it is showing a new patented product for security applications, the Unigram or Latentogram. It combines a hologram with a latent image, and can contain more than ten levels of protection in a multilayer film.
The latent image becomes visible when a simple identifier device – about the size of a business card, but with a window containing a special film – is placed over the hologram.
Unigram is targeted at product verification applications at the brand and consumer level.
“Security printing is like a cat and mouse game, you always have to stay one step ahead of the counterfeiters,” said Uflex deputy general manager for marketing CG Ramesh.
Other Uflex products on show include a hot melt holographic film that can be used for textile and garment decoration.
The company is also showing a biodegradable holographic giftwrap.
Ramesh said the company was enjoying a successful show so far, “It’s been wonderful, we’ve already booked a big order with a security printing customer from the UK. We’re very happy.”
The Uflex group manufactures its integrated range of packaging and film products in India, Dubai, Egypt and Mexico, and has turnover of more than Rs 3900 crore (€530m).
