Michelman is exhibiting at Paperex 2022, which is being held May 10-13, at the India Expo Centre in Delhi, India. In booth J30, hall 11, the company will feature its sustainable, water-based barrier and functional coatings for paper, paperboard, and corrugated.
Michelman reports that its 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. Michelman offers a variety of coatings that are used to impart water, oil, and grease resistance; reduce water vapor transmission (MVTR); and provide heat-seal and release capabilities.
Visitors to the booth can also learn more about the Michelman Innovation Centre for Coatings (MICC), located at the company’s offices in Mumbai. The center’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.
In addition to exhibiting, Andrew Michelman, executive vice president, will be speaking at the event in a seminar session entitled “Achieving sustainability goals with water-based barrier coatings.” His presentation will take place May 11 at 3:30 p.m.
