India’s leading BOPP film producer, Cosmo Films will be showcasing its range of premium lamination films and synthetic paper at PrintPack India 2017. The premium range of lamination films comprises the new improvised velvet, black velvet, scuff-free matte and digital lamination films. The portfolio has been designed for the luxury packaging and high-end graphic lamination industries. Synthetic paper is a non-tearable, paper-like film, engineered as a solution to various marketing and printing industry needs.
“Being a critical member of the postpress industry, we look at PrintPack India as a very promising exhibition to engage with the print and graphic arts industry. We look forward to this event to showcase our impressive range of print- and lamination-centric products,” says Jeevan Kulkarni, head – domestic sales, Cosmo Films.
Velvet lamination film is a flagship product in Cosmo Films’ premium range engineered to lend a rich velvet finish to the printed surface. Engineered on a special matte base film, this film is ideal for giving a premium finish to premium liquor, perfume, watch and jewellery packs and boxes. The film can also be used for laminating coffee-table books, high-end magazines, brochures and manuals.
The black velvet lamination films offer an intense black colour along with a velvet touch to laminated paper, paperboard or packaging. It works well with post lamination processes like spot UV, foil stamping, printing and embossing. Apart from luxury packaging applications, black velvet films are suitable for high-end promotional material and stationery such as coffee-table books, magazines, brochures, manuals, posters, shopping bags, wedding cards, gift boxes, calendars and diaries.
Unlike a traditional matte film, scuff-free matte lamination films provide excellent resistance to scuff marks that might develop in production, transportation or handling of the pack or the product. Apart from luxury packaging applications the film is suitable for laminating cartons for electronic goods like mobile phones and tablets. Engineered to provide excellent bonding to digital printed surfaces, the premium film provides excellent optics and protection and is available in both gloss and matte variants.
Synthetic paper is a plastic film with key features such as non-tearability, paperlike appearance, moisture resistance and good lay flatness and used as a replacement of paper in applications where non-tearability and weather resistance are desired. It is used currently for printing visiting and ID cards, garment tags and marketing collateral such as posters, banners and stationary items where longevity is essential such as maps, flip charts, and calendars. Another important application of synthetic paper is for the making of washable books for children or cooking recipes. PC: A sample of synthetic paper and velvet lamination foil
