Cosmo Films, a leading manufacturer of specialty BOPP films, has come up with an improvised anti-fog film with excellent cold and hot anti-fog properties, high hot tack and low co-efficient of friction, which can deliver high speed over wrapping performance.

This means that the film would now be suitable for packaging of even unpolished fruits in trays on high speed HFFS machines.

Anti-fog films are generally transparent films which go in for fresh fruits or vegetables, salad packaging and meat packaging applications.

The high-moisture content in these food items lead to mist formation on the film’s surface, thus affecting the visibility, and therefore, the perceived freshness of the food packed inside.

An anti-fogging film not only prevents this phenomenon leading to a better visibility of the contents inside, but also renders the pack a better shelf appeal owing to its enhanced gloss or optics. The film complies with the EC and FDA food contact regulations.

The film is a co-extruded, both sides heat-sealable, both side treated BOPP film, where printing is done generally on the top side and inner side lends in the anti-fogging characteristics. The film works well in a single layer as well as BOPP/AF BOPP laminate structure.

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

“The thickness of the film ranges between 15 and 40 microns. The company also makes film compatible for sealing on PE trays. A keep-fresh grade, providing a longer shelf life because of anti-bacterial properties is also available,” he added.
