The winning entries for SIES SOP Star Awards included a recyclable soap wrap film and an ultra high barrier film that can serve as a replacement of aluminium foil. The recyclable soap wrap film is a major innovation as it helps both brands and converters fair better on laminate structure rationalization and gsm reduction thus reducing the overall costs; better aesthetics because of pearl effect and of course recyclability quotient.
The winning entry for IFCA Star Award was the black velvet lamination film which offers intense black colour along with velvet touch to the laminated paper/paperboard or package, thereby enhancing its overall aesthetics.
