Cosmo Films now offers a comprehensive range of overwrap films, including high-shrink tight wrap, medium shrink, general overwrap and cable overwrap films.
The overwrap films are untreated, heat-sealable BOPP based films which not only offer protection from moisture but also enhance pack optics through their transparency, clarity and wrinkle-free appearance.
The high-shrink tight wrap films offer shrinkage values in range of 9-11 percent and are meant for individual cigarette packs. Medium shrink films offer shrinkage in range of 4-6 percent and are suitable for bundling individual cartons. General overwrap films are used for general purpose printing, pouching and packaging of snacks and bakery products, as well as IV fluids textile and hosiery products. Cable insulation overwrap films offer protection from moisture, grease, oil and dust.
The films are capable of running on high-speed wrapping machines. For instance, tight wrap films enable seamless application at 350 to 380 packets per minute. They also have hot slip properties, high stiffness and good machinability.
“Though we mostly cater to the food and beverage industry through our range of products, we are now glad to be offering products for tobacco industry as well,” said Kapil Anand, Head-Label Films Exports, Cosmo Films. “Apart from the primary benefit of moisture barrier, high-shrink film’s shrink ability enables tight wrapping of the cigarette packs that comes in handy for their easy dispensing from the vending machines.”
