Some of the barrier films, featuring moisture, oxygen and aroma barrier properties, which the company is highlighting at the show include:
Broad seal and high hot tack barrier films: This category of metalised films is a new addition to the Cosmo’s range of barrier films and these metalised films having a broad heat seal range and high hot tack have been designed to run on high speed machines and can be used for medium-size food packs.
High moisture barrier films: These are metalised films used for duplex and sandwich lamination in snack foods, shampoo sachets, dry milk powder and powdered drinks sachets/packs, where loss of moisture is a concern.
Aroma barrier films: These are transparent barrier films typically used for coffee/tea, spices, chewing gum and perfume boxes overwrapping.
High moisture and oxygen barrier films: These transparent films have both excellent moisture and gas barrier properties and are used for packaging of cream biscuits, chocolates, chips and snacks.
The company will also be showcasing cold seal release films meant for packaging of ice creams, chocolates and confectionary in gloss, matte and white varieties.
Some of the new packaging films that would be on display are:
Universal lidding films: These films are mono-layered BOPP films which can take printing on one side and can be sealed with the other. They are referred to as universal lidding films as they can be sealed with any of the thermoplastic containers such as PP, PVC, HDPE, HIPS and PET. Available in white opaque cavitated and semi transparent varieties, they can be used as easy peelable lid on packed drinking water glasses, meal trays, butter trays, fresh fruit containers, and milk containers to name a few.
Both sides heat sealable matte films: These are both side heat sealable matte films with low seal initiation temperature, specially designed for lap seal applications.
Besides the packaging range, Cosmo will also be showcasing its range of top coated labelstock films, In-mould label films and wrap around label films.
