The winning entries included Matte Coated Cosmo Synthetic Paper and Sterilisable Conduction Sealing Film.
Matte coated Cosmo Synthetic Paper is an ideal replacement of normal paper in applications where durability and longevity are desired. It is a non-tearable paper available in two variants namely top coated and both sides coated. This speciality paper is recyclable in nature & tree-free while it also provides moisture & chemical resistance. Cosmo Synthetic Paper is printable with most of the available printing technologies which include wet and UV offset, wet and UV flexo, letterpress, screen, thermal transfer and most of the digital toner technologies. It accepts writing from most pens, as well as rubber-stamps impressions, and can be folded, sheeted, stapled, hot and cold foil-stamped, die – punched, serrated and adhesive bonded.
Sterilisable conduction sealing film is used for wad and lidding applications for PP and PE containers. It offers exceptional seal integrity and improved convenience to the consumers as it is easy to open and peels cleanly. The film can withstand high temperatures during sterilization process, which is used to increase the shelf-life of the product. Apart from offering excellent optical properties and printability, this film is safe for direct food contact. This film can be used as a mono layer or as a sealant layer in a laminated structure with other substrates like aluminium foil. The film is used primarily in dairy industry for flavoured milk; food & beverage segment for juices, energy drink, bakery products; pharmaceutical industry; agro chemicals and cosmetics industry.
