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.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
