Cosmo conduction sealing films

Cosmo Films, a global leader in speciality films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications, and synthetic paper, recently launched a sterilizable conduction sealing film for wad and lidding applications for PP and PE containers. The film can withstand high temperatures (the temperatures and duration vary according to the product category as well as the sterilization process and parameters) during the sterilization process, which can be used to increase the shelf life of products.

The newly developed sealing film is a clear, one side corona treated and other side heat sealable film. The film offers seal integrity and improved convenience to the consumers as it is easy to open and can be peeled off neatly without splitting. Apart from offering excellent optical properties and printability, it is also 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. It can be used in roll or pre-cut form (after lamination with other substrates) based on the requirements of the customers. The film is used primarily in the dairy industry for flavored milk; food and beverage segment for juices, energy drinks and bakery products; pharmaceutical industry; agro chemicals; and cosmetics industry.

Speaking on the development, Pankaj Poddar, chief executive officer, Cosmo Films said, “This is an award-winning film especially developed keeping in mind the dairy industry. The uniqueness of the film lies in its endurance to withstand high temperatures during sterilization process without affecting its seal integrity. We are confident of the success of this film and the response so far has been extremely encouraging.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
