Cosmo Films, a leading manufacturer of speciality BOPP films, will be launching its new range of premium lamination films under the Luxotique brand, at the upcoming drupa 2016 show – the world’s leading trade fair for print and cross-media solutions, from 31 May to 10 June 2016 in Dusseldorf, Germany. The company’s yet to be launched Luxotique range comprises the new improvised velvet, scuff free matte and digital lamination films. The portfolio has been designed keeping the needs of luxury packaging and high-end graphic lamination industries in mind.
The flagship product of the Luxotique range, as the name indicates, is 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 luxury, liquor, perfume, watches and jewellery packs and boxes. The film can also be used for laminating coffee table books, highend magazines, brochures, manuals and other products.
Luxotique Scuff Free matte
Unlike a traditional matte film, this film provides excellent resistance to scuff marks which could develop during production, transportation and handling of the pack. The matte surface of the film is also ideal for post laminating procedures such as UV spot coating, hot foil stamping, embossing and other methods. Apart from the luxury packaging applications mentioned earlier, this film is best suited for laminating packing boxes of electronic goods like mobile phones, tablets, power banks.
Luxotique digital film
Regular thermal lamination films do not give adequate bonding with digital printed surfaces containing high levels of fuser oil. Luxotique digital film has been specially engineered to provide excellent bonding to digital printed surfaces, along with providing excellent optics and protection. This film is available in both gloss and matte varieties. Cosmo would also be showcasing its standard and special applications lamination films at the expo.
This specially engineered metallized film is used in buildings construction to provide thermal insulation. This is made possible by laminating this film with EPS (Expanded Polystrene). This metallized film helps EPS to withstand the abuse of thermal cycling therefore assuring long-term performance. Laminated EPS further enhances weather ability and helps mitigate trapping of moisture within wall and roof assemblies. Laminated EPS sheets are light in weight, cost-effective and save energy during heating and cooling.
Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.
