Pointing to the range of metallised films, Jeevan Kulkarni, head – domestic sales, Cosmo Films, said, “The high moisture barrier films are suitable for sandwich lamination in shampoo sachets, dry milk powder and powdered drinks sachets where loss of moisture is a concern. For bulk packs that need the moisture barrier, we have films with high moisture barrier and high seal strength films and then there are the ultra-high barrier films for foods with fatty contents such as dry fruits, chips, cream biscuits packs etc.”
Besides this, Cosmo has also showcased aroma barrier films for coffee, tea and spices packaging; high oxygen barrier films for biscuits packaging and high oxygen and aroma barrier films for ready-to-eat pack applications.
An interesting substrate at Cosmo stand was synthetic paper. It is a BOPP film which appears and behaves like paper. “The film can replace paper in all applications where non-tearability and weather resistance is desired. Today, it is used primarily for printing visiting and ID cards, garment tags and marketing collaterals such as posters, banners etc. Going forward, all important documents like medical reports, educational certificates and land documents and instruction manuals could be printed on synthetic paper.”
