Cosmo Films, a global leader in speciality films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications as well as synthetic paper, recently launched a metalized velvet lamination film for the luxury packaging segment. The newly developed film has been engineered to offer intense silver color along with rich velvet touch to the laminated paper/paperboard or package.

Silver color is not easy to handle, especially when used as a background during printing. It takes longer to dry and also has a risk of ink set off during print stacking. Due to these challenges, printers usually avoid using silver as a background color. However, graphic art designers prefer silver background as it allows them to make attractive artworks facilitating use of many other shades and the impact it generates with gold foil stamping and UV spot coating. To bridge this gap, Cosmo Films introduced the metalized velvet touch film which is glueable, stampable and printable. The matte silver colored BOPP-based velvet touch lamination film needs to be laminated to the unprinted paper before going for printing or post lamination embellishments.

The film is available for both thermal and wet lamination in 32 and 20 microns, respectively and offers excellent printability with offset, UV offset, screen, UV inkjet and laser printing. Apart from providing scuff resistance, the film is perfect for post lamination operations like UV spot coating, foil stamping and embossing. The film is ideal for lamination of premium products like perfume cartons, liquor and wine cartons, gift and jewellery boxes, shopping bags for luxury brands and for the graphic arts industry.

Speaking on the development, Pankaj Poddar, chief executive officer, Cosmo Films said, “Packaging design is an important differentiator given that the brand owners are extremely conscious of their brand image and consumer experience these days. With the addition of metalized velvet film to the existing portfolio, Cosmo now offers an enhanced portfolio of premium lamination films to choose from.”

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.
