CGS Oris expands its packaging substrate portfolio

CGS Oris expands its packaging substrate portfolio with a new white pouch film with metalized lining for the food sector

CGS Oris has added another unique film to its media portfolio for solvent printers. The new pouch film has both a white and a metalized side corresponding in appearance and tactility to a typical aluminum composite film, often used in the food industry for pouches, snack bars or similar products.

‘With the market launch of what is now the fourth heat-sealable film, we have responded to the great demand from our users. Lightweight sachets and stand-up pouches made of composite films are increasingly replacing the traditional types of packaging on the market,’ said Heiner Müller, sales director, packaging at CGS Oris.

‘This is obviously also reflected in the increased demand for respective mock-ups. These pouch films are currently very much in trend and are in great demand. The films can all be printed quickly and easily and then converted into a perfect prototype. They are suitable for a variety of different packaging prototypes without having to resort to the original substrate,’ added Müller.

Thanks to the white-laminated side of the substrate it enables fewer passes required and significantly reduced ink coverage, because white no longer needs to be printed. This of shortens the necessary drying times and makes the entire production process much faster and more efficient.

All pouch films are characterized by a large color space, heat sealability and direct printability. This is an advantage, especially for the production of large, thin, flexible packaging, which often cannot be produced with transfer film on the original stock without wrinkling.

The entire media range for solvent printers has been specially developed to meet the particular high requirements for the production of proofs and prototypes in the packaging sector. It ranges from various transparent, aluminum and shrink films to cardboard packaging and the highly flexible CGS Oris Media Transfer Film, which allows printing on original materials.
