A record 150 suppliers are signed up for ADF&PCD New York 2018, North and South America’s only dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume and cosmetic packaging and design communities which takes place at the Altman Building & Metropolitan Pavilion on 5 & 6 September 2018.
Major names such as Aerofil Technology Incorporated – Coster USA, Emerson, Lindal Group, Parcome, Seram, SGB Packaging Group Inc., Toyo & Deutsche Aerosol and Tri Pac are all on board, with many companies using the show as the global launchpad for new products.
APR Packaging will be launching its new patented twist open/concealed nozzle airless package at the show. In the closed position, the nozzle is hidden within the package and the actuator is locked, therefore unable to dispense. When twisted open, the nozzle pivots cleanly into position and the actuator is unlocked.
Iggesund Paperboard is showcasing its new Metalprint Digital, which has been developed in close cooperation with HP Indigo. Metalprint Digital runs without a priming step, in the HP Indigo one shot mode, on 10,000 and 12,000 machines, allowing a number of different effects to be achieved.
Formulated Solutions is debuting its eN2fused Whipped Lotion Technology. Its innovative dispensing format has been designed for fast absorption and ease of application. In addition, its unique gas-infused formula creates millions of microbubbles which rapidly expand when dispensed, creating a finely whipped, luxurious, yet easy to spread and rub-in experience.
Corpack is launching Sughera - a revolutionary material consisting of a synthetic rubber-blend mixed with ground pieces of natural cork. For the first time, a micro-agglomerated natural cork is injection molded and formed without using glue. The new material (70% cork, 30% rubber-blend) uses less petroleum-based materials, while giving the component a natural look and feel.
Anomatic, a full-service manufacturer of anodized aluminum packaging is poised to roll out a state-of-the-art vacuum metallization (PVD) system – which applies a thin layer of metal on top of another material, such as plastic – making it one of the only companies in the U.S. using vacuum metallization for the beauty packaging industry. Those who attend its booth to hear about this will also be able to check out its wider metallization capabilities, its ability to decorate, the late-stage differentiation it offers (hot stamping, two-color screen printing), and its flexible lacquer for metallizing hinged closures.
AFA Polytek North-America is presenting Flairsol, its next generation trigger-based dispensing technology that eschews conventional propellant gases and pressurized containers. Its low noise, re-usable head and refill solution make it a strong eco-option.
Apollo Industrial will be displaying its full range of packaging for the cosmetics industry. This will include its cream jar, oil pump, mist sprayer and dispenser ranges. Also on show will be its foaming pump, which provides a rich and dense foam quality and offers a series of different mesh filters, dosages, capacities and designs.
