Cosmo Films, a provider of speciality films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications, has launched new biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) based heat resistant films.
The new heat resistant films have been engineered to work as printing layer replacing BOPET film in multi-layer laminates for several packaging applications in both food and non-food segments.
The films are clear, non-heat sealable and both sides treated films with enhanced printability, as well as suitable for reverse printing applications.
Cosmo’s thermally stable films are provided with enhanced slip properties and good machinability, making them to use on high speed FFS packaging machines.
The new films are available in 15μ, 18μ and 20μ strengths, and suitable for both adhesive as extrusion lamination applications. They also offer better lamination bond.
Cosmo has also introduced barrier version of the film. It is a transparent BOPP based barrier HR film with advanced oxygen barrier properties and provides OTR of less than 100cc/m² per day.
The film also offers good resistance, making it suitable for oily snack food packaging applications.
Cosmo Films CEO Pankaj Poddar said: “Homogeneous structures are becoming increasingly preferable as recyclability of multilayer packaging becomes need of the hour.
“Polypropylene structures or even Polypropylene plus Polyethylene structures are better placed from recyclability perspective because they belong to the same polymer family. Cosmo Films with more than 100 years of collective OPP experience now stands in an advantageous position to develop specialised polypropylene films aimed at a sustainable future”
