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.

cosmoUnlike 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

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.
