Cosmo Films has top-coating capability available across diverse widths generally required by label stock manufacturers, such as 1-, 1.3-, 1.6-, and 2.2-metres

The both side coated PS label films are excellent for printing with diverse ink systems. These have been especially designed for repositionable and removable label applications. Functionality imparted is no adhesive stain on containers post removal of labels.  

The matte-coated PS label films have unique top coating which are compatible with eight kinds of print media namely UV flexo, water flexo, thermal transfer, letterpress, screen, HP indigo, UV inkjet and UV offset. These are available in 65 and 75 microns for pressure sensitive label stock application. They find applications in labelling of high-end personal care products, pharmaceuticals and drum labelling.

The transparent in-mould label film has been specially designed to offer in-mould label customers requiring no label look and high transparency for their labels. The film offers high gloss on both sides and can be printed using offset, rotogravure and flexo printing processes. The film finds its applications for both PP & PE Injection moulding.

The high tear-resistant synthetic paper for tags and labels are non-tearable and has excellent tear resistance and has been designed specifically for tag applications. It is printable on both sides by UV offset, water and UV flexo, and thermal transfer printing processes. Typical tag applications include garment hang tags, horticulture identification tags, tree tags, cattle identification tags and airport transfer tags.

Kapil Anand, head sales, speciality label and industrial films, Cosmo Films, said, “Labelexpo Europe is the world's largest event for the label and package printing industry and we look forward to use this platform to interact with new customers; seek new and good enquiries for showcased products and witness latest in labelling and sustainability.”

Anand said at this year’s show, the company is looking forward to experience the latest technological innovations on the digital platforms across the world; new innovations and trends in water-based inkjet printing technology; and recyclable practices being used by other companies from the label perspective.

He added that Cosmo Films has top-coating capability available across diverse widths generally required by label stock manufacturers, such as 1-, 1.3-, 1.6-, and 2.2-metres. Cosmo has recently installed a new, automated 2.2-m coating line, which enables both side coating in a single pass. The company also has an in-house state-of-the-art product application centre to test and validate functionalities as well as print quality of the film for new innovations and customised offerings.
