Cosmo Films, a provider of films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications as well as synthetic paper, will be showcasing latest innovation in films for labels at the upcoming Labelexpo Brussels.

The new labeling products to be displayed have been designed keeping in mind the latest trends such as sustainability, transparency, premium finish substrates and personalization. At its stand 5D05 in Hall 5, the company will display label films for various applications.

Films for repositionable and removable label applications

These are polypropylene based both side coated P.S labelstock films which offer excellent print receptivity with diverse ink systems. The films do not leave stains on the container if the labels need to be removed or repositioned. Designed in sync with sustainability initiatives, these down-gauged films are available across all appearance varieties.

Matte coated P.S labelstock films

These films have a unique top coating, which is compatible with eight different kinds of print media, namely UV flexo, water flexo, thermal transfer, letterpress, screen, HP Indigo, UV inkjet and UV offset. These films go in 65 and 75 microns when used as P.S labelstock material and in thicker microns (up to 500 micron) for non-pressure sensitive applications. They are mostly used in labeling of high-end personal care products, pharmaceuticals and drum labeling.

Transparent in-mold label film

These films have been specifically designed to offer in-mold label customers who require no label look and high transparency for their labels. They offer high gloss on both sides and can be easily printed using offset, rotogravure and flexo printing processes.

High tear-resistant synthetic paper for tags and labels

This non-tearable synthetic paper has been designed for tag applications. The product is printable on both sides by UV offset, water and UV flexo and thermal transfer printing processes. Some of the typical tag applications include garment hang tags, horticulture identification tags, tree tags, cattle identification tags and airport transfer tags.

High speed WAL film

The cavitated white opaque film has been designed for high speed bottling operations and displays excellent machinability up to 55K BPH.

Pearlized metalized WAL film

The unique white film offers sparkling metal and is mostly used by well-known beverage brands for their limited edition bottles and high-end jobs.

Kapil Anand, head sales – Speciality Labels 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 feedback and enquiries for showcased products and witness the latest trends in labeling and sustainability.”

Talking about infrastructure to support, Anand added that Cosmo Films has top-coating capability available across diverse widths such as 1, 1.3, 1.6, and 2.2 meters; generally required by label stock manufacturers. “Cosmo has recently installed a new, automated 2.2 meters coating line, which enables both side coating in a single pass. The company also has an in-house state-of-the-art product application center to test and validate functionalities as well as print quality of the film for new innovations and customized offerings,” he said.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
