FIT-FOR-PURPOSE LABELS

November 21, 2013

UPM Raflatac has introduced a range of next generation products to offer fit-for-purpose performance for the main end-use segments. The Fit range combines increased production efficiency and sustainability credentials with no compromises on printing and dispensing performance. Raflacoat Fit PEFC introduces much needed efficiency to high-volume food applications. The new PEFC-certified mid-gloss label face is sustainably sourced, and the thinner 63 µm in caliper yields up to 30% longer rolls, substantially reducing downtime during roll changes. The labelstocks are equipped with adhesives for all food labeling temperatures, including the EU 10/2011 compliant next generation hotmelt RH 6 optimized for chilled conditions but equally capable in room temperatures. Raflacoat Fit PEFC is available with three liner options. The HG65 and HG45 glassine liners are PEFC-certified like the label face. The ProLiner PP30 option maximally reduces the labelstock thickness to increase productivity and to provide better performance in high-speed applications and humid conditions.
