Toyo Ink Co., Ltd. and Toyochem Specialty Chemical Sdn. Bhd., – both member companies of the Toyo Ink Group – plan to spotlight a collective portfolio of inks, coatings, adhesives and specialty products at ProPak Myanmar 2018.

Featured at the Toyo Ink Group Booth C-1 will be its recent innovations in flexible packaging, such as flexo and gravure laminating inks, laminating adhesives (solvent-based and solventless), hot-melt adhesives for packaging materials and PET bottle labels. Also on display will be the group’s expanded line of sheetfed and coldset offset inks for commercial and publication printers with offset printing operations. Rounding out the group’s special printing effect and functional product portfolio for the food and beverage, and sensitive markets are polymer alloy and frosted masterbatch for plastic molding, and metal decorating inks and coatings.

Today’s announcement comes off the heels of the group’s recent US$6.5-million investment to set up a manufacturing subsidiary, Toyo Ink Myanmar, in Yangon’s Thilawa Special Economic Zone. “ProPak is a milestone event for us,” said Hiroyuki Matsumoto, chairman of Toyochem Specialty Chemical. “The event provides us with a platform to not only showcase our products and technology, but also build a strong brand presence in the country’s growing packaging sector. The Toyo Ink Group will soon begin construction on a factory in Yangon with completion slated for fall 2019.”
