Gaurav Talwar, managing director, Brilliant Polymers, said, “With our strong customer base in Africa, the Middle East, South-East Asia and the Indian subcontinent, Interpack was the perfect platform to meet our global customers as well as connect with new ones in focus markets, especially in and around Europe”

The Brilliant Max Cure range of solvent-free adhesives is state-of-the-art formulations based on pure MDI that provide an ultra-fast physical cure, 48-hour PAA decay, robust food safety compliance and enhanced environmental sustainability. 

With a curing speed several times higher than existing offerings, the Max Cure range will bring converters the critical benefit of being able to fill flexible packages more quickly and safely and will offer several additional advantages. These include ultra-fast physical cure; quick development of bond and heat seal strength, enabling slitting /pouching in short times; user-friendly; long pot life; excellent optical appearance, even at high running speeds; excellent chemical and heat resistance; and compatible with modern ink systems.

Brilliant Max Cure is being launched in India in Q2 of 2023 with the global launch expected in the third quarter of 2023.

As a market leader in laminating adhesives for food packaging, Brilliant is focusing its efforts on predicting future trends and developing product ranges that ensure the safety of people and the environment. This includes anticipating tightening regulatory constraints and offering solutions that meet customer expectations.

The HA960 / A900 is a GLYMO-free high-performance solvent-based adhesive based on aliphatic isocyanates. It can be used for a wide range of high-performance applications and avoids the concern of migration of PAA (primary aromatic amines) which is a risk associated with adhesives based on aromatic isocyanates.

Brilliant HA960 has been designed as a modular system and is highly versatile. The base component can be combined with different hardeners to deliver a wide range of performance properties: for thermal processes such as sterilisation, aggressive filling goods, and hot filling processes. The fields of application range from pet food and medical applications to convenience products. 

With the addition of these new products to its portfolio, Brilliant Polymers is poised for a period of significant growth and consolidation both in India and abroad. 

“We expect these products to be game changers for our customers,” Talwar said.

Brilliant Polymers is India’s leading manufacturer of laminating adhesives for flexible packaging with a 40% market share. With a production capacity of 45,600-mt, its manufacturing facility in Ambernath, Maharashtra, is one of the world's largest single sites for the manufacture of laminating adhesives.
