Cosmo Films to launch “Luxotique” range at DRUPA 2016

Cosmo Films, a leading manufacturer of speciality BOPP films will be launching its new range of premium lamination films under the “Luxotique” brand, at the upcoming DRUPA 2016 show – the world’s leading trade fair for print & cross-media solutions, scheduled to take place from 31st May to 10th June 2016 at Dusseldorf, Germany.

Company’s yet to be launched Luxotique range comprises of the new improvised velvet, scuff free matte & digital lamination films. The portfolio has been designed keeping the needs of luxury packaging and high end graphic lamination industries in mind. Let’s look at the product portfolio in greater detail.

Luxotique Velvet: The flagship product of the Luxotique range, as the name indicates, is engineered to lend a rich velvet finish to the printed surface. Engineered on a special matte base film, this film is ideal for giving a premium finish to premium/luxury liquor, perfume, watches and jewellery packs/boxes. The film can also be used for laminating coffee table books, high end magazines, brochures, manuals etc.

Luxotique Scuff Free matte: Unlike a traditional matte film, this film provides excellent resistance to scuff marks which could develop during production, transportation and handling of the pack. The matte surface of the film is also ideal for post laminating procedures such as UV spot coating, hot foil stamping, embossing etc. Apart from the luxury packaging applications mentioned earlier, this film is best suited for laminating packing boxes of electronic goods like mobile phones, tablets, power banks etc.

Luxotique Digital: Regular thermal lamination films do not give adequate bonding with digital printed surfaces containing high levels of fuser oil. Luxotique digital film has been specially engineered to provide excellent bonding to digital printed surfaces, along with providing excellent optics and protection. This film is available in both gloss and matte varieties.

Cosmo would also be showcasing its standard and special applications lamination films at the expo. Let us look at some of the special applications films that will be on display:

Insulation Films: This specially engineered metalized film is used in buildings construction to provide thermal insulation. This is made possible by laminating this film with EPS (Expanded Polystrene). This metalized film helps EPS to withstand the abuse of thermal cycling therefore assuring long term performance. Laminated EPS further enhances weather ability and helps mitigate trapping of moisture within wall and roof assemblies. Laminated EPS sheets are light in weight, cost effective & save energy during heating & cooling.

Mapped & Matched Films: These are premium polyester films used for lamination of loyalty/gift cards, ID cards, postcards and applications requiring excellent flatness. These film rolls come mapped to each other for two-sided lamination and provide excellent clarity and durability to the cards.

Sushil Dhar, Global Head-Lamination Films Exports, Cosmo Films said, “ DRUPA is an excellent market place bringing everyone engaged in print & graphic industry together once in four years. Being a critical member of the post press industry; we look forward to this event to showcase our impressive range of products to the whole printing and lamination fraternity. This year is even more exciting since we are launching our “Luxotique” range of premium lamination films at the exhibition.”
