Cosmo Films, a global leader in speciality films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications as well as synthetic paper has recently introduced a cast polypropylene (CPP) film for packaging applications requiring high moisture & oxygen barrier and high hot tack properties.
The newly launched heat sealable CPP films also offer high hot tack (>600gf/inch over a range of 100- 140 degree celsius) and low seal initiation temperature; enabling packaging machines to run at higher speeds. As far as barrier is concerned, the films offer good moisture, oxygen, light and aroma barrier properties. The films offer an OTR and MVTR of <30cc/m 2 /day and <0.3g/m 2 /day respectively. The high barrier metallized films also offer high metal bond.
The films have been tested well for biscuits, cookies & crackers, snack food applications, chocolates, and ice-creams. Available in a range of 20 to 30 microns, films are well suited for both adhesive as well as extrusion lamination.
Speaking on the development, Mr. Pankaj Poddar, CEO Cosmo Films said, We see more & more CPP being used globally as well as India as a choice material for packaging applications in food and agriculture owing to its high transparency vis-a vis polyethylene and excellent sealing performance. Cosmo Films with years of experience in the polypropylene space has worked hard to come up with an extensive range of CPP films that it offers today both from functionality as well as mono- materialization standpoint.”
