Cosmo Films, a specialty film provider for packaging, lamination, and labeling applications and synthetic paper, has introduced a new bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) based coated film, which is designed to release a fragrance which lasts for a long time slowly.

According to Cosmo, the film is matte-finished on one side while the other side is extrusion coated for thermal lamination applications. Through initial tests, these newly designed films have proven to remain fragrant for more than two months, and it is expected that the film would continue to release a soothing fragrance for almost six months. The film is available in 24 microns thickness and is aptly suited for thermal or wet lamination.

Cosmo said the film could be widely used for applications like catalogs, book covers, various bonds, magazines, visiting cards, packaging for cosmetics and personal care items, and more.

Speaking fragranced packaging film, Pankaj Poddar, chief executive officer, Cosmo Films, said, “A sense of pleasing smell acts as a catalyst for a positive outcome. BOPP-Fragranced packaging film has been introduced in the market to give the customers a feel-good factor. Cosmo Films is dedicated to innovate and is in constant search of excellence for the customers worldwide.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
