Talwar added that the investment was supported by ‘a strong conviction in India’s growth potential, as well as a deep and nuanced understanding of the market dynamics of the flexible packaging industry’.

Besides increasing the site’s capacity, Plant Two will allow Brilliant Polymers to increase its research and development initiatives.

The company is set to launch several products in the solvent-based and solvent-free adhesives space over the coming months.

These include high-performance solvent-based adhesives such as retort and high-running solids consisting of 50-55% solids.

In addition, Brilliant Polymers plans to launch low-monomer products made with pure methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) in the solvent-free sector.

Operational since 2013, Brilliant Polymers is a manufacturer of laminating adhesives for flexible packaging in India.

The company currently supplies between 2.5 and 2.7% of the world’s requirements for solvent-based and solvent-free laminating adhesives.

The latest expansion is expected to increase Brilliant Polymers’ share in the global market to more than 5%.

It is also part of the company’s long-term commitment to serving its customers, employees and business associates in India.
