India-based Cosmo Films has upgraded its existing range of anti-fog films, which can be used in various packaging applications including unpolished fruits in trays on high-speed horizontal form fill seal machines (HFFS).

The new improvised anti-fog film contains enhanced cold and hot anti-fog properties.

It also enables high hot tack and low coefficient of friction, which can deliver high-speed overwrapping performance.

Cosmo Films packaging films exports head Shailesh Verma said: “The film has excellent machinability, high heat seal and high hot tack strength and low seal initiation temperature, and therefore works very well on high-speed packing machines.

“The film is available in 15μm to 40μm thickness. The company also makes film compatible for sealing on PE trays. 

“A Keep Fresh grade providing longer shelf life because of anti-bacterial properties is also available.”

The company further noted that its new co-extruded both side heat sealable, and both sides treated biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film works well in single-layer and BOPP / AF BOPP laminate structure.

Complying with the European Union (EC) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) food contact regulations, the film also enables printing on the top and inner side of the packaging.

Furthermore, the transparent film is suitable for use in packaging for fresh fruit / vegetables, salad, and meat.

The high moisture content in these food items causes mist formation on the film surface, affecting the visibility.
