Cosmo Films Launches Synthetic Paper

DELHI, INDIA | Cosmo Films, a manufacturer of specialty BOPP films, has announced the launch of BOPP-based universal printable synthetic paper. The newly launched film, said to have the appearance of paper, is printable with all available printing technologies, including wet and UV offset, wet and UV flexo, letterpress, screen, thermal transfer, and most of the digital toner technologies. 

Company says the versatility of synthetic paper is reflected in the vast number of applications in which it can be used. This includes tags and labels, retail and packaging, identification and credentials, and outdoor uses. Some of the applications under each of these segments are as follows:

  • Tags and Labels: Chemical drum labels, airport transfer tags, track and trace labels
  • Retail and Packaging Segment: POP graphics, carry bags
  • Identification and credentials: visiting cards, land documents, birth and merit certificates
  • Outdoors: Tree tags, train station and airport signages and displays

Synthetic paper is said to be suitable as a replacement for paper in applications where durability and longevity is desired. It reportedly has a matte paper-like finish, is non-tearable, has moisture and chemical resistance, and excellent lay flatness. The product is available in 75, 95, 120, 150, 175, 195, 215, 275, 330, 375, and 430 microns.

S. Satish, global head of sales and marketing, Cosmo Films, says, “The universal printable synthetic paper has been a long standing unmet need of the market, as currently different synthetic paper grades were being offered for different printing technologies. This universal printable product will help printers to significantly reduce their inventory carrying costs.”
