Mumbai – 15 to 17 December


Cosmo Films, a leading manufacturer of speciality BOPP films will be showcasing its comprehensive range of speciality packaging films, especially barrier films, at the upcoming International PackTech India 2016 – 9th International Exhibition for processing, packaging and printing, scheduled to take place from 15 to 17 December 2016 in Mumbai, India.

Some of the barrier films which would be on display are: Broad Seal & High Hot Tack Barrier Films, High Moisture Barrier Films, and Aroma Barrier Films. Cosmo will also display some new packaging films at the exhibition.

Broad Seal & High Hot Tack Barrier Films: This category of metalized films is a new addition to the Cosmo’s range of barrier films and these metalized films having a broad heat seal range & high hot tack, have been designed to run on high speed machines and can be used for medium size food packs.

High Moisture Barrier Films: These are metalized films used for duplex and sandwich lamination in snack foods, shampoo sachets, dry milk powder and powdered drinks sachets/packs, where loss of moisture is a concern.

High Moisture and Oxygen Barrier Films: These transparent films have both excellent moisture and gas barrier properties and are used for packaging of cream biscuits, chocolates, chips and snacks. The company will also be showcasing Cold Seal Release Films meant for packaging of ice creams, chocolates and confectionary in gloss, matte and white varieties.

Universal Lidding Films: These films are mono layered BOPP films which can take printing on one side and can be sealed with the other. They are referred to as Universal Lidding films as they can be sealed with any of the thermoplastic containers such as PP, PVC, HDPE, HIPS and PET. Available in white opaque cavitated and semi transparent varieties, they can be used as easy peelable lid on packed drinking water glasses, meal trays, butter trays, fresh fruit containers, and milk containers to name a few.

Both Sides Heat Sealable Matte Films: These are both side heat sealable matte films with low seal initiation temperature, specially designed for lap seal applications. Besides the packaging range, Cosmo will also be showcasing its range of top coated labelstock films, In-mould label films and wrap around label films.

Jeevan Kulkarni, head – domestic sales, Cosmo Films said, “We look at this exhibition as a great platform to showcase our comprehensive range of speciality packaging films to converters and brands, specifically in the food and beverage industry. With our speciality films and customized innovation, we are confident of meeting the new emerging packaging challenges like shelf life extension and reduced plastic consumption.”

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.
