Home » Cosmo Films Earns Two 2018 SIES SOP Star Awards
Cosmo Films, a global leader in specialty films for flexible packaging, lamination and labeling applications, earned two awards at the SIES SOP Star Awards in Mumbai for excellence in packaging innovation and product development. The winning entries included Matte Coated Cosmo Synthetic Paper and Sterilizable Conduction Sealing Film.
Matte coated Cosmo Synthetic Paper is an ideal replacement of 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 specialty paper is recyclable and tree-free while also providing moisture and 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-stamp impressions, and can be folded, sheeted, stapled, hot and cold foil-stamped, die-punched, serrated and adhesive bonded.
Sterilizable 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 monolayer or as a sealant layer in a laminated structure with other substrates such as aluminium foil. The film is used primarily in dairy industry for flavored milk; food and beverage segment for juices, energy drinks, bakery products; pharmaceutical industry; agro chemicals and cosmetics industry.
Delighted over these achievements, Sanjay Chincholikar, senior vice president-operations at Cosmo Films, said: “To be considered for award like SIES is an honor for us, and we are truly humbled to have received the awards. For the last few years, we have been consistently working toward developing specialty products meeting specific packaging and labeling needs of our customers. Receiving recognition for these products goes a step further in assuring them of only the best quality products reaching their table.”
