Cosmo Films to set up a new Line for speciality polyester (BOPET) films
Cosmo Films has announced plans to re-commence the installation of a speciality polyester films line (Biaxially-Oriented Polyethylene Terephthalate).
The new line will be commissioned at the Waluj plant site in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. This plant already houses BOPP lines, extrusion coating lines, chemical coating lines, metallizers and a CPP line. The new production line will complement the existing BOPP capacity and allow Cosmo Films to offer a more comprehensive speciality product basket for flexible packaging, labelling, lamination and industrial applications.
Pankaj Poddar, CEO, Cosmo Films Ltd, said: ‘Speciality BOPET is a niche segment which caters to multiple application segments, with high margins and opportunities for import substitution as well as worldwide exports. The new specialty BOPET line shall be unique and a majority of the products made on the line would focus on sustainability and creation of a greener future as the key theme.’
