Cosmo Films, a global leader in speciality films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications, has introduced a cast polypropylene (CPP) metalized film with high metal bond strength. The film has been specially designed to offer superior inter layer bond strength of 450 gm/inch for making multi-layer laminate structures, which in turn enhances barrier properties.
Available in standard thicknesses ranging from 20 to 30 microns, the film has a high hot tack and low SIT of 96 to 98 degree Celsius; it helps FFS machines to run at a higher speed, thereby increasing productivity. Moreover, the film also exhibits superior heat seal strength of 2.5 kg/inch. Some of the typical applications of the film include biscuits and snacks, bakery products, chocolates, chewing gums, dairy products, spices, etc.
Huge potential for CPP in flexible packaging
CPP film is growing in popularity as an attractive packaging material owing to its versatility. Additionally, Cosmo offers different variants of CPP films like transparent, white opaque and metalized for multiple applications. It provides excellent seal strength as well as good moisture and gas barrier making it a material of choice for convertors and brand owners.
Furthermore, speaking on the development, Pankaj Poddar, chief executive officer of Cosmo Films said, “The latest addition of high metal bond strength film has definitely expanded our CPP portfolio; we see a huge potential for this film into flexible packaging. A strong metal adhesion is critical to get good interlayer bond strength; it ultimately improves barrier properties, making it an ideal choice for food packaging applications.”
