Hypak, A New Contender In Flash-Spun
(including Medical Device Packaging)
A Rs 5,000-crore metamaterial market in India, hitherto dependent on a single
supplier, now has an alternative.
Kingwills will supply Hypak in the Indian subcontinent from August 2022
Flash-spun metamaterial has been used extensively in India, due to its physical
properties of high strength, water resistance and breathability for a plethora
of applications. This market has been growing in double digits in India, even
during pandemic years, but has suffered due to supply constraints from the
To fill this supply gap, a brand-new flash-spun metamaterial named Hypak has
been made available in the Indian market by China-based Kingwills New Materials
Company. The Hypak flash-spun metamaterial is manufactured by Kingwills, which
has invested into its research and development since 2014. After eight years of
extensive research, development, testing and pilots, it has now started scaled
production this year.
Kingwills will supply Hypak in the Indian subcontinent from August 2022. The
company will continue to invest into the development of a new type of flash-spun
metamaterial in alternate chemistry, which will expand the horizon of the new
products and applications.
Kwalicon Fabtech, a young company formed by professionals with decades of
experience in marketing speciality products, has secured an exclusive
partnership agreement with Kingwills for Hypak.
According to Kwalicon, the compact micro pores of Hypak allows gaseous particles
to pass through, while its unique non-woven structure blocks water, dust, solid
particles, microbes and bacteria from penetrating, thus making Hypak unique.
Made from virgin polyethylene polymers, it can be 100% recycled to get second
life products both through chemical and mechanical recycling processes, ensuring
support to a sustainable and circular economy.
Commenting on the launch of Hypak in India, Mohnish Grewal, director at Kwalicon
Fabtech said, “Due to its special performance and extremely difficult
manufacturing process, flash-spun metamaterials have always been the top
materials in varied applications. We are very excited to partner exclusively for
the Indian subcontinent with Kingwills New Materials Company for Hypak.”
“India has huge growth potential in speciality products, where Hypak flash-spun
metamaterial will provide consistent highquality supplies for our customers. We
have firm commitments for undisturbed and continuous supply and will effectively
close the huge demand gap that currently exists in this market today through the
nation-wide distribution network,” he concluded.
Application areas of Hypak
Tags and labels, protective and tamper-proof envelopes, wrist bands,
security/education certificates and documents, personal protective equipment (PPE),
medical sterile PPE kits for surgeries and epidemic protection, industrial
