  • Reply to: Schreiner Group: New production site set up

    The opening of the Schreiner Group's new production site in Dorfen near Erding (Upper Bavaria) is within reach. At the beginning of May, the first screen printing machine was delivered, set up and put into operation as a test. The starting signal for a successful production build-up has fallen. With a second branch in the metropolitan region of Munich and the creation of additional production capacities, Schreiner Group, an international high-tech company for innovative functional labels, is reacting to the continuous growth.

    Congratulations to the whole Schreiner team..
    An exceptional labelprinting company !

  • Reply to: VCI - Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor: A need for secured packaging

    What is VCI? VCI - Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor VCI provides anti-corrosive metal protection to address the corrosive nature of ferrous and non-ferrous metal products. A unique multi-metallic VCI concentrate for plastic and paper application. VCI is the environmentally preferred corrosion protection for metal components. VCI master batch can be blended with many polyethylene resins (LLDPE/LDPE/HDPE/PP) to form a broad range of anti-corrosion packaging systems.  Kraft paper can also be used as the carrier for VCI. Why to Use VCI? Worldwide corrosion costs industry and manufacturing approximately US $1.8 Trillion annually. VCI protects against corrosion and other environmental variables that are directly responsible for loss due to corrosion attack.

    • It provides effective corrosion protection to a wide range of metal types
    • Its versatility allows it to be used in a wide range of polymer systems and many fields
    • VCI films provide protection against moisture
    • VCI is clean, very easy to use and handle
    • VCI films allow for visual inspection of product without unwrapping
    • VCI reduces the need for additional oils, greases and desiccants
    • Vapors penetrate recessed inaccessible areas
    • Once unpacked the metals do not require additional cleaning or degreasing treatments
    • Numerous benefits result in reduced labor costs

    Corrosion

    • Corrosion is the deterioration of a material undergoes as a result of its interaction with its surroundings. Although this definition is applicable to any type of material, it is usually reserved for metallic (ferrous and non ferrous) alloys. Corrosion processes not only influence the chemical properties of a metal but also generate changes in its physical properties and its mechanical behavior.
    • Corrosion is the electrochemical reaction between a material, usually a metal, and its environment that produces a deterioration of the material and its properties.
    • Corrosion is the oxidation of metals in the presence of water or water vapor etc. Corrosion results in tarnish, pitting, and flaking

    Cost of Corrosion

    • A recent estimate of the worldwide direct cost of corrosion – for prevention as well as repair and replacement – exceeded $1.8 trillion.
    • India loses $40 billion* a year due to corrosion in infrastructure and industries segments - about 4 % of the size of the total economy *Ref. Press Trust of India New Delhi, Oct 2014

    Fighting Corrosion With VCI

    • Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors work by diffusing corrosion inhibiting molecules from a source (packaging film or paper for example) to metal surfaces.
    • These molecules settle on metal surfaces and form a protective corrosion inhibiting layer that inhibits the electro-chemical reactions that cause corrosion to form.
    • An estimated 25 to 30 % of the annual cost of corrosion can now be avoided if optimum corrosion management practices are employed i.e. VCI packaging.
    • VCI is one of the most cost effective versatile tools fighting corrosion.

    How Does VCI Work?VCI works When VCI is incorporated into a polymer system or Kraft paper, the finished product offers corrosion protection by releasing vapors which form a monomolecular protective layer on the surface of the metal component to be protected. This protective layer remains until the package is opened and then evaporates leaving a clean metal surface that is free of corrosion. VCI Protection is a Function of:

    • Which metals are in need of protection?
    • Corrosion inhibiting chemicals used and their effectiveness on the metals.
    • Ratio of chemicals in the formulation.
    • Amount of VCI in the paper or in the film.
    • Water solubility and the effectiveness of the corrosion inhibitor in presents of moisture and/or high humidity.
    • The overall packaging design and the conditions expected during packaging, shipping and storing.

  • Reply to: Use Of Opp Film In India For Packaging: Globally Opp Is 3 Times Higher Than Pet Film But In India, Its Almost Same

    Other day at the airport, I met an old friend of mine. he is also from the packaging field and we then started talking about OPP film use in India. While we looked at the numbers on rough basis, what we found is quite interesting:  the global capacity of PET film is approx 1800 thosand tonees while OPP is approx 5500 thosand  tonnes annually. When we look at the same comparison in India, PET film capacity is approx 300 thosand tonees and OPP film capacity is 250 thosand tonnes.

     

    So did you notice that globally OPP is films is used more than 3 times than PET film while in India its even less than PET film.

     

    I do not know what is the reason behind such a big difference. Earlier I used to think, it due to machineability but now its more than 20 years that OPP is popular in India and all such printability, machineability issues have found the solutions. So any idea why such a big difference when we look globally?

    The thermal lamination film has certain requirements on the paper, and the improper selection of the paper may also cause the printed matter after the thermal lamination film is bad. According to experience, the tensile strength of short staple paper is low, and the paper is easily broken after the thermal lamination film is applied at the rolling line or the unevenness, so that the ink on the paper is broken, causing partial separation of the film and the printed matter, especially when the direction of the rolling line is This problem is more likely to occur when the orientation of the paper is the same. In addition, the coated coated paper, especially the thick coated coated paper, has no problem after using the thermal lamination film, but if the film is rolled, the unevenness and the like are formed, the film is formed at the rolling line and the unevenness. Phenomenon, this is mainly due to the small amount of high molecular polymer added in the coating of the coated paper, and the inorganic components are many. When the external force is applied, the coating is easily powdered and peeled off. Therefore, the film is caused by the rolling line or the unevenness process. The film layer of the film is separated from the printing paper.

  • Reply to: Chaayos: What an experience with teas

    Yesterday afternoon I got a surprise in office when I was suddenly served warm tea on my desk. You will be thinking so what was so great that I was surprised? Simple reason, it was a traditional tea that we find on roadside corner tea stalls that we all love in hard day's work but we hardly get such ready tea in our sophisticated offices. The reason is simple, if we order from roadside corner then hygiene is an issue. So this was something that came in the area new and experimented by our Kanpur boy Rohit.

    This is the traditional tea prepared by Chaayos hygienically and packed in stand up pouches with spouts. Later on that spouted pouch is put into a kind of cost effective insulated box of micro fluted carton having a spout popping out with simple easy to carry & easy to pour handle. Chaayo-flask Interestingly this came in easy to carry brown bags with 4 numbers of earthern pots: the traditional way of having tea and that is also environment friendly. I loved the tea and was proud to be a packaging technologist as this happened only because of packaging that someone could implement his nice idea.

    I wish all the success to #chaayos Its name is also nice as I guess it comes from Indian name Chai for tea.
