In addition, the company exhibited ultra-high film clarity for thicker transparent label films. “We also showcased in-line coated BOPP label films for superior adhesive and print receptivity for UV flexo. And last but not the least, we will be presenting WAL films for high speed bottling applications,” Manohar added.

Among the range of innovative products and services on offer, Manohar explained about PSL & IML large product portfolio, which is now equipped with higher thickness and excellent flatness. “We have developed in-house novel coatings, which are far superior when it comes to print and adhesive receptiveness,” he said.

Max’s new BOPP manufacturing line is expected to catalyse the growth of specialty films for the company. “The advanced design of our new state–of-the-art BOPP line commissioned last year will enable us to delve deeper into labels and barrier films as important market segments,” Manohar said.

Currently, the new investment enables the company to produce 12- to 85-micron films to cater to in-mould labelling and pressure sensitive labelling segments. This line has almost doubled the company’s production capacity from 46.35-kilo tonnes per annum to 80.85 KTA, which has resulted in better economics for the company. So we are poised to spearhead the domestic and global markets and innovation is leading us to achieve this milestone.
