High-barrier metallized packaging filmAs barrier properties get increasingly important for packaged food products, flexible players in the space seem to be gearing up for the development. Cosmo Films, known for its specialty films offers multiple barrier products.

One such product is a highly effective high barrier metallized BOPP film. The film generally used as part of a duplex/triplex laminate structure with OPP/PET/PE offers good lamination bond. The end-pack can be used for all food/personal care applications where moisture barrier is of utmost importance. The film also offers optimum gas barrier properties.
Along with barrier properties, the film has good heat seal strength for pouching applications. The film can be used for cold sealing as well.
Available in 12/15/18 microns, the film’s metallization offers superior anchorage with the film. The treated metallized surface may be used for printing.
“We are also working on a coated product with drastically enhanced gas barrier properties," says CEO Pankaj Poddar.
Technical features include:
  • Excellent MVTR (< 0.25 g/m2/day)
  • Moderate OTR(< 40 cc/m2/day)
  • Good heat seal strength(400 - 500 g/25 mm)
  • Good lamination bond with PE (> 1.5N/25mm)
  • Corona treatment on both sides
