Cosmo Films, a producer of specialist films for flexible packaging, lamination and labelling, has launched new biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) heat-resistant films.
The films have been engineered to work as a printing layer replacing BOPET film in multi-layer laminates for various packaging applications.
The products are clear, non-heat sealable and are treated on both sides allowing for “excellent printability”.
India-headquartered Cosmo said the films have “excellent slip properties and good machinability and therefore work well on high-speed FFS packaging machines”.
The company has also launched a barrier version of the film, which has a good grease resistance which is suitable for oily snack food packaging.
Pankaj Poddar, CEO Cosmo Films, said: “Homogeneous structures are becoming increasingly preferable as recyclability of multilayer packaging becomes [the] need of the hour.
“Polypropylene structures or even polypropylene plus polyethylene structures are better placed from recyclability perspective because they belong to the same polymer family.
“Cosmo Films, with more than 100 years of collective OPP experience, now stands in an advantageous position to develop specialised polypropylene films aimed at a sustainable future.”
