Michelman inaugurates innovation centre for coatings in India
Backed by over 70 years of water-based coating expertise the Michelman Innovation Centre for Coatings (MICC) is strategically designed for development of sustainable packaging solutions. The centerpiece of the MICC is a Kroenert pilot coater laminator that allows packaging manufacturers to test new concepts without stopping their production lines.
Additionally, collaboration with Michelman’s technical and market experts allows brand owners, film producers, converters, universities, and others involved in the research and development of packaging produce more sustainable solutions. The MICC is outfitted with a training and conference facility as well.
The Centre includes equipment for barrier testing, lamination, and for improving both the physical and chemical properties of coatings. These capability improvements will benefit Michelman’s customer service and in-house flexible packaging expertise.
