What is Cosmo Synthetic Paper? Exploring its Features and Applications

From using vegetable fibre in AD 105 to tree pulp in the current day, we’ve come a long way. The print & publishing industries have been relying on various forms of substrates for their applications. One of the most recent innovations in this domain is synthetic paper. Cosmo Films, a leading specialty films manufacturer, took this a step further with the introduction of Cosmo Synthetic Paper that is here to meet the growing demand of print & publishing industry in an efficient manner.

In this blog post, we’re going to explore this revolutionary solution in detail.

What is Cosmo Synthetic Paper?
CSP is a direct replacement for pulp-based paper wherever durability is desired. It is a co-extruded, white opaque polypropylene-based synthetic film that looks like regular paper.
The conventional paper has been a reliable option for many years, but CSP offers an upgrade with increased durability and an eye on sustainability.

Cosmo Synthetic Paper is a step in the right direction. Here are a few of its core features:

  • It is a non-tearable paper made from polypropylene-based synthetic film.
  • It resembles paper but has increased durability.
  • It is resistant to moisture, oils, and chemicals.
  • It has excellent lay flatness.
  • It supports various print technologies like UV Offset, UV Flexo printing, Conventional Offset, etc.
  • It can be sheeted, die-cut, bonded, stapled and serrated despite its strength.
  • It is suitable for hot foil stamping.
  • It is highly versatile in durable applications.
  • It is tree-free paper & is also recyclable.


Commercial Printing
Other replacements face issues with printing. CSP has excellent printability and good lay flatness. In addition to that, being waterproof and chemical-resistant makes it favourable to make:

  • Religious Books
  • Hospital Folders
  • Posters
  • Recipe Books
  • Instruction Manuals

Tags & Labels
These are important as they give valuable information about the product to the customer. Torn paper tags could put the consumer at risk, bringing down their trust in your brand. CSP’s tear-resistant feature, along with the ability to receive hot foil stamping, makes it great for:

  • Food Packaging Labels
  • Apparel & Footwear Tags
  • Container Labels such as Paint
  • Big Warning Labels
  • Electronic Appliances Labels

Retail & Packaging
Paper is widely used to promote discounts and seasonal offers. Retailers order these tags in bulk because they know how fragile they are. With the ability to be serrated, stapled and adhesively bonded, CSP finds its uses in:

  • Indoor Billboards
  • Shelf Labels
  • Danglers
  • Shelf Talkers
  • Carry Bags

Identification & Credentials
Identification information printed on paper has been a liability for a long time. Lamination could only offer a temporary fix, but CSP’s water & tear resistance is a game-changer here. This is a revolutionary way to improve durability and can also be used for:

  • Library cards
  • Student ID cards
  • Marksheets & All types of Certificates
  • National ID Cards
  • Insurance Cards

Few materials survive the harsh outdoor climate. This is where CSP outshines tree-paper. It is a great option for outdoor use because of its extremely durable nature paired with water resistance. It can be used for:

  • Outdoor Billboards & Banners
  • Displays & Advertisements on Vehicles
  • Storefront Displays
  • Horticulture Identification Tags
  • Tree Tags

You can get these in sheets and rolls to match your requirements. CSP’s diverse features and applications coupled with its recyclable nature, makes it one of the best eco-friendly investments.
