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.”
