Cosmo Films has developed a novel BOPP based clear thermal lamination anti-microbial film, effective against a broad range of bacteria, inhibits germ growth and supports hygiene.

The anti-microbial technology used in this film tackles the globally growing problem of bacterial infections on packaged items, by providing a completely new approach of preventing microbial colonization on the surface. It also shows positive effect against Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538 and Escherichia coli ATCC 8739 as per JIS Z 2801 certification.

The film has an extrusion coated surface with low temperature melting resin, which enables lamination of film on paper products by heat and pressure. This can be replicated into all types of labels, flexible packaging solutions and synthetic paper.

The film fibre has excellent tear bond strength with paper and a maximum lamination temperature in the range of 100-129 degree C. It can be used for a wide variety of applications such as magazines, books, promotional items, textbooks, leaflets, cartons, diaries, shopping bags and many more.

Speaking on the globally growing problem of bacterial infections, Pankaj Poddar, CEO, Cosmo Films said, ‘Amid this pandemic, we all are searching for ways to stay safe and healthy. Washing our hands continuously and disinfecting every product we touch to prevent the spread of bacteria have become part of our daily routine. Cosmo’s antimicrobial technology will prove to be effective against a broad range of bacteria.’
