The Michelman Innovation Centre for Coatings in Mumbai

This is the first time Michelman is exhibiting at the show.

Michelman waterborne coatings are formulated with circular economy initiatives in mind. The sustainable coating technologies help brand owners and converters transition from plastic packaging to paper without compromising barrier properties. 

The company offers a wide variety of coatings that are used to impart water, oil, and grease resistance, reduce water vapour transmission (MVTR), and for heat-seal and release capabilities. They are used globally on countless end-use items such as single-serve food containers, paper cups, plates, and trays for the foodservice industry, paper bags and paper tapes for eCommerce brands, and other paper and corrugated-based substrates.  

Visitors to the booth can also learn more about The Michelman Innovation Centre for Coatings (MICC), located at Michelman’s offices in Mumbai. The MICC is a place where 70 years of water-based coating expertise converge to help customers excel in the diverse range of markets they serve with sustainable and responsible solutions. 

This centre’s focal point is a sustainable packaging incubator strategically designed to serve the needs of India and its surrounding markets to allow for fast, efficient development of sustainable packaging solutions for brands and converters. Businesses can also collaborate with Michelman’s technical experts to become plastic waste management compliant.
