West Java, Indonesia– PT. Toyo Ink Indonesia, a member of the Toyo Ink Group in Japan, in collaboration with its sister subsidiaries Toyo Ink Co., Ltd., Toyocolor Co., Ltd., Toyo-Morton, Ltd. and Toyo ADL Corp., will jointly exhibit for the first time at Plastics & Rubber Indonesia 2019. Under the banner of “The Future of Packaging Design,” the collective Toyo Ink Group of companies will showcase a comprehensive range of high performance inks and coatings, adhesives and colorants and other advanced materials for the packaging and plastic converting markets. In line with a tightening food regulatory landscape in the region, the Group will also newly launch to the Indonesian market a broad portfolio of safe and sustainable packaging solutions, including flexo printing formulations and biomass-based products designed to help converters address today’s food packaging compliance requirements.
New Solvent-based Flexo Series for High-speed Printing
Visitors to the PT. Toyo Ink Stand D-830, Hall D1, will be introduced to the new RV series of solvent-based flexo printing inks that address the market demand for safer inks for food packaging and labeling. Toluene- and ketone-free, the RV series from Toyo Ink includes a surface printing type and lamination type. Both systems meet the need for small-lot production, faster turnaround times and cleaner pressroom environments of Southeast Asian package printers.
Research on Deinking & Delamination Techniques
Visitors can also learn more about the Group’s latest research on deinking and delaminating technologies that help to improve the recyclability of plastic waste. The Group has been grappling with the issue of removing printed ink from the surface of plastic containers and packaging films.
Solutions to Boost Performance, Eco Benefits
On display at the booth will be the Lioplax™ series of functional masterbatches from Toyocolor. With the introduction of an additive, Lioplax colorants can be modified to impart enhanced performance to plastic, such as odor absorbing and antibacterial properties, heat insulation, UV protection, to name a few.
Toyo ADL's LABELMELT™ series of easy-peel, hot-melt adhesives for PET bottle label applications are based on a biomass resin with 30% of its content sourced from bio-renewable sources. Other eco-friendly food packaging solutions include toluene-free heat seals, water-based heat seals and cold seals from Toyo Ink may be reverse printed on to lidding or other monolayer film for reduced plastic weight.
Also featured at the PT. Toyo Ink booth will be solvent-based laminating adhesives from Toyo-Morton, which are widely used in the packaging of food and daily commodities. The formulations can be customized for virtually any packaging application, while complying with strict regulations (US FDA) for food packaging safety. In addition, the company’s high-solid coating adhesives are specially engineered to reduce residual solvents, energy costs, displacement volumes, curing times, and coating speeds, all of which can be achieved on existing equipment.
Plastics & Rubber Indonesia 2019 will take place at the Jakarta International Expo from November 20 – 23, 2019. For more information on the event, see www.plasticsandrubberindonesia.com/about/about-the-show/.
