Cosmo Films Adds to BOPP Line

DELHI, INDIA | Cosmo Films, a manufacturer of specialty BOPP films, has introduced several additions to its range of barrier films. These solvent-free coated films used for a wide range of FMCG packaging applications are said to help in extending the shelf life of the contents inside and also with pack structure rationalization. 

Metallized barrier films include the following:

  • High Moisture Barrier Films (HMB): Metallized barrier films that are corona treated on both sides and can be used for duplex as well as for sandwich lamination in snack foods, shampoo sachets, dry milk powder, and powdered drinks sachets/packs, where loss of moisture is a concern.
  • High-Speed Barrier Films with High Hot Tack (HSB): These metallized moisture and oxygen barrier films have a high hot tack and low SIT said to enable FFS machines to run at a higher speed
  • High-Seal-Strength Barrier Films (HSS): These metallized moisture and oxygen barrier films have been designed for packaging applications requiring high seal strengths
  • Ultra High Barrier Films (UHB): Metallized moisture and oxygen barrier films can be used to substitute aluminum foil since they offer a MVTR and OTR <0.1 cc.

Transparent Barrier Films include the following:

  • Aroma Barrier Films (AB): These are transparent barrier films typically used for coffee/tea, spices, chewing gum, and perfume box overwrapping.
  • Aroma & Oxygen Barrier Films (AOB): Company says these transparent films have both excellent moisture and gas barrier properties and are used for packaging of cream biscuits, chocolates, chips, and snacks with some dose of fatty content.
  • Ultra-High-Barrier Films (UHB): These transparent films reportedly have excellent moisture, aroma, and gas barrier properties with OTR<1 cc and are used to convert three-layer laminates to two layers for packaging of aromatic and fat content rich products such as dry fruits, nuts, spices etc. These films also offer mineral oil resistance.

S Satish, global head—sales and marketing, Cosmo Films, says, “We are excited by these new additions to our barrier films range, especially the BOPP replacement to the aluminum foil. We are now confident of meeting most shelf life requirements of the food packaging industry with our extensive range of barrier films. All our barrier films also have good printability and hence can be used for monolayer applications also. With our extended range of specialty films and our customized innovation focus, we are confident of meeting the new emerging packaging challenges viz shelf life extension and reduced plastic consumption.”
