Cosmo Launches Lamination Films

DELHI, INDIA | Cosmo Films, a manufacturer of specialty BOPP films, has announced the launch of BOPP-based Black Velvet lamination films. The films are said to offer an intense black color along with a velvet touch to the laminated paper/paperboard or package, thereby enhancing its esthetics. It is also reported to be well suited for post-lamination processes such as spot UV, foil stamping, printing, etc. 

Company says solid colors such as blue, red, and black are difficult to handle, especially when used in the background for offset printing. These background colors also take longer to dry, leading to increased lead time for print delivery. However, graphic art designers prefer using black background because of the impact it generates with foiling and other post lamination operations and more so in case of luxury packaging.

Because of this need gap, company has come up with black velvet lamination films that can compensate for the black printing on paper for background. These films must be laminated to the unprinted paper before going for printing or post lamination embellishments.

The films are available for both thermal and wet lamination in 32 and 21 microns respectively and are gluable, stampable, and printable. Reportedly, the films provide a superior velvet matte finish to the laminated surface and are also offer excellent scuff resistance. Besides luxury packaging applications, films are also suitable for high-end promotional material.

S. Satish, global head of sales and marketing at Cosmo, says, “The launch of black velvet lamination films has added a new dimension to our range of premium lamination films, and the exciting fact is that this development can be replicated in other colors as well. The films have been commercialized and the response so far has been extremely encouraging.”
