Cosmo Films has launched an enhanced barrier metallised BOPP film specially designed for packaging applications with very high moisture and good oxygen barrier properties and high metal bond.
The company told PrintWeek that the film has been developed for applications such as flexible packaging for lamination, packaging of biscuits, snacks, bakery products, chocolates and personal care products such as shampoo sachets.
According to Cosmo Films, the film can be used as a sandwich layer in multilayer laminate structures. The end pack can be used for all food and personal care applications where moisture barrier is of utmost importance.
With a thickness range of 15 and 18 μm, the film is suitable for adhesive lamination, which provides a good heat seal strength and facilitates cold seal adhesive reception on the non-metallic side.
Talking about the product launch, Pankaj Poddar, group CEO, Cosmo Films said, “We carefully evaluate the expectations of our customers, and engineer products which are best suited for them. The enhanced metallised BOPP film is an apt addition to our range of barrier films which not only improve the shelf life of the packaged product, but also help in creating mono material eco-friendly structures.”
