Cosmo Films (New Delhi, India), a leader in speciality films for flexible packaging, lamination and labelling applications as well as synthetic paper, recently launched a metallized velvet lamination film for the luxury packaging segment. The newly developed film has been engineered to offer intense silver colour along with rich velvet touch to the laminated paper/paperboard or package.

Silver colour is not easy to handle especially when used as a background during printing. It takes longer to dry and also has a risk of ink set off during print stacking. Due to these challenges, printers usually avoid using silver as a background colour. However, graphic art designers prefer silver background as it allows them to make attractive artworks facilitating use of many other shades and the impact it generates with gold foil stamping and UV spot coating. To bridge this gap, Cosmo Films introduced the metallized velvet touch film which is glueable, stampable and printable. The matte silver coloured BOPP based velvet touch lamination film needs to be laminated to the unprinted paper before going for printing or post lamination embellishments. 

The film is available for both thermal and wet lamination in 32 and 20 microns respectively and offers excellent printability with offset, UV offset, screen, UV inkjet and laser printing. Apart from providing excellent scuff resistance, the film is suited for post lamination operations like UV spot coating, foil stamping & embossing. The film is reported to be ideal for lamination of premium products like perfume cartons, liquor & wine cartons, gift & jewellery boxes, shopping bags for luxury brands and the graphic arts industry.
