AkzoNobel Packaging Coatings is set to sell its flexible packaging adhesives and ink media business to Polytech International.

The company’s Pure-Flex business specialises in solvent-based, solvent-free and water-based laminating adhesive and ink media technologies for the European and South African packaging film converting industries.

AkzoNobel BU managing director AB Ghosh said the agreement is a good outcome for all stakeholders.

"The acquisition is set to expand Polytech’s business portfolio into the food and flexible packaging market."

"Following a strategy review, it has been decided the flex-pack adhesives business no longer fits within our product portfolio. Transferring adhesives and ink media activities to a new owner is the best way forward for the business," Ghosh said.

According to AkzoNobel, Polytech has operated as a toll manufacturer for Pure-Flex for many years, and is familiar with the portfolio and business.

The company’s association with the business is expected to ensure a smooth transition for customers.
