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.

Luxotique Velvet
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.

Insulation films
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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
