Cosmo Films, a global leader in films for packaging, labeling and lamination applications now offers a comprehensive range of overwrap films which include high shrink tight wrap, medium shrink, general overwrap and cable overwrap films.
The overwrap films offered are untreated both side heat sealable BOPP based films which not only offer protection to products packed inside due to their moisture barrier property but also enhance the pack optics because of their transparency, clarity and wrinkle free appearance. The high shrink tight wrap films offer shrinkage values in range of 9-11% and are meant for individual cigarette packs. Medium shrink films offer shrinkage in range of 4-6% and are suitable for bundling individual cartons. General overwrap films are used for general purpose printing, pouching & packaging of snacks, bakery products; IV fluids overwraps, textile & hosiery overwraps etc. Cable insulation overwrap films offer excellent moisture barrier and protection from grease, oil and dust.
The films are capable of running at high speed wrapping machines. For instance, tight wrap films enable seamless application at 350 to 380 packets per minute. They also offer excellent hot slip properties, high stiffness and good machinability.
Commenting on the development Mr. Kapil Anand, Head-Label Films Exports, Cosmo Films said, “Though we mostly cater to food & beverage industry through our range of products, we are now glad to be offering products for tobacco industry as well. 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.”
