Bimal Corporation was founded in 2010 by Shri Bimal Bhansali and Shri Pratik Bhansali with an ultra modern plant in Bangalore which was also Karnataka’s 1ST Fully Automated plant to produce PP Strapping Rolls. Our capacity has increased from 360 tonnes/annum initially to over 3000 tonnes/annum over 6 years, with a gross growth rate of 830 percent for 6 years.
Eve in 2017 as we speak,we are South India’s largest producers of PP strapping and in April 2017 we shall begin production of our ultra modern plant to produce BOPP SELF ADHESIVE TAPES.
1: BOPP SELF ADHESIVE TAPE IS A KIND OF PRESSURE SENSITIVE TAPE, i.e. IT BASICALLY CONSISTS OF A FILM WHICH HAS AN ADHESIVE COATING ON IT WHICH IS GENERALLY WATER BASED AND WITH MINIMUM PRESSURE CAN STICK TO ALMOST ANY DRY AND CLEAN SURFACE.
2: THE FILM WE USE IS BOPP- BIAXIALLY ORIENTED POLYPROPYLENE AND THE ADHESIVE WE USE IS A WATER BASED ACRYLIC ADHESIVE WHICH IS MOST SUITED FOR BEST ADHESIVE PROPERTIES.
3: THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS GENERALLY HAS TWO PROCESSES: COATING AND SLITTING.
COATING IMPLIES JUMBO ROLLS OF BOPP FILM IS COATED WITH THE ADHESIVE AND ALLOWED TO DRY IN HOT AIR OVENS WHERE THE WATER IS EVAPORATED AND HENCE JUMBO ROLLS OF COATED FILMS ARE READY.
NEXT THESE ROLLS ARE SLITTED INTO VARIOUS SIZES IN DIFFERENT LENGTHS.
4: IN CASE OF PRINTED TAPES, PRINTING IS DONE FIRST , THEN IT IS FOLLOWED BY COATING AND SLITTING.
5: THERE IS NO MAJOR NULEAR OR ATOMIC SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY INVOLVED TO MAKE THESE TAPES .. NOW, CUSTOMERS NEED TO FOCUS ON SOME FACTORS LIKE:
THICKNESS & QUALITY OF FILM
THICKNESS & QUALITY OF ADHESUVE COATING
LENGTH OF EACH ROLL
IN GENERAL MOSTLY, VERY FEW MANUFACTURERS OFFER WHAT THEY CLAIM, BECAUSE AT THE END THIS IS JUST A PACKING PRODUCT, FOR INSTANCE: A TV OR REFRIGERATOR MANUFACTURER WOULD BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HIS PRODUCT QUALITY THAN OF THE TAPE BEING USED TO PACK THAT PRODUCT.
FOR THIS PURPOSE WE HAVE DEVELOPED THE POWERSTRAP BOPP TAPE TEST, WHERE ALL THESE PARAMETERS ARE TESTED IN FRONT OF THE CUSTOMER AND THE CUSTOMER IS MADE AWARE OF WHAT HE/SHE IS PAYING FOR!
THERE ARE HONEST MANUFCATURERS, OUR INTENTION IS TO MAKE CUSTOMERS AWARE AND EDUCATE THEM TO CHECK IF THEY ARE GETTING WHAT THEY ARE PAYING FOR.
THANK YOU FOR READING THIS AND WE HOPE THIS HAS BEEN USEFUL IN CREATING SOME AWARENESS ABOUT BOPP SELF ADHESIVE TAPES.
