DELHI - Cosmo Films, a leading manufacturer of speciality BOPP films set up a CPP line with an annual capacity of 1800 MT at its existing facility in Waluj, Aurangabad recently and has been manufacturing CPP films since this February. At present, all eight products under CPP portfolio have been commercialized and have been received well by the market.
The portfolio consists of three transparent, three metalized and two speciality products. The speciality products include high speed packaging and antifog films. This is just the beginning and company is already working on further developing the portfolio. The decision to set up a CPP line comes in wake of polymer gaining favour as material of choice in both traditional flexible packaging as well as non-packing applications. Some of the reasons for this broad based acceptance are excellent heat seal strength, good thermal stability, good puncture resistance, excellent clarity & printing and films fair barrier properties. The film type also has good yield economics owing to its low density. Some of archetypal application areas for the film includes hot filling and retort applications, high speed application on FFS machines and twist wrap applications.
Mr Pankaj Poddar, CEO of the company was spotted at the launch of the line saying “The CPP market has been largely unorganized and was looking for an organized player like us to add value to the market. And being a focussed BOPP player comes in handy as CPP and BOPP have always been close cousins”.
