154

Cosmo Films, manufacturer of films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications as well as synthetic paper, bagged two awards at the recently concluded SIES SOP Star Awards 2018 in Mumbai for excellence in packaging innovation and product development in the flexible packaging space. The winning entries included Matte Coated Cosmo Synthetic Paper and Sterilisable Conduction Sealing Film.

Matte coated Cosmo Synthetic Paper is an ideal replacement of normal paper in applications where durability and longevity are desired. It is a non-tearable paper available in two variants—top coated and both sides coated. This speciality paper is recyclable in nature and tree-free while it also provides moisture and chemical resistance. Cosmo Synthetic Paper is printable with most of the available printing technologies, which include wet and UV offset, wet and UV flexo, letterpress, screen, thermal transfer and most of the digital toner technologies. It accepts writing from most pens, as well as rubber-stamp impressions, and can be folded, sheeted, stapled, hot and cold foil-stamped, die-punched, serrated and adhesive bonded.

Sterilisable conduction sealing film is used for wad and lidding applications for PP and PE containers. It offers exceptional seal integrity and improved convenience to the consumers as it is easy to open and peels cleanly. The film can withstand high temperatures during the sterilization process, which is used to increase the shelf life of the product. Apart from offering excellent optical properties and printability, this film is safe for direct food contact. The film can be used as a mono layer or as a sealant layer in a laminated structure with other substrates like aluminum foil. The film is used primarily in the dairy industry for flavored milk; food and beverage segment for juices, energy drinks, bakery products; pharmaceutical industry; agro chemicals and cosmetics industry.

Sanjay Chincholikar, senior vice president – operations at Cosmo Films said, “To be considered for awards like SIES is an honor for us and we are truly humbled to have received the awards. For the last few years, we have been consistently working towards developing speciality products meeting specific packaging and labeling needs of our customers. Receiving recognition for these products goes a step further in assuring them of only the best quality products reaching their table.”

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.
