Cosmo's product range

The products on display would include new versions of synthetic paper, namely high tear-resistance paper and both sides coated paper along with premium lamination films, pressure-sensitive label films and speciality packaging films.

The synthetic paper is a co-extruded, white opaque, polypropylene-based film which resembles paper in appearance. It is printable with most available printing technologies. It can be used as replacement of paper in applications where durability and longevity is desired. It is non-tearable, has moisture and chemical resistance and excellent lay flatness.

The premium range of lamination films comprises velvet, scuff-free matte, linen and digital lamination films, which have been designed keeping the needs of luxury packaging and high-end graphic lamination industries in mind.

Labelstock films for self-adhesive labelling are available in transparent, white, matte and metalised varieties (both coated and uncoated options). The films are compatible with UV and water-based ink systems. The films also offer high stiffness for conversion and dispensing.

The films for packaging on display would include barrier films which help with shelf life extension of food products and offers barriers such as moisture, oxygen, aroma and light.  The other speciality on display would be heat-resistant BOPP films which can replace BOPET film in the printing layer and designed keeping the recycling concerns with heterogeneous structures in mind.
