Short-term labeling solutions are used in a variety of logistics and transport applications, particularly where containers are labeled and used multiple times. Some typical examples are recyclable crates and airline meal trays.
Dissolving Paper Thermal Eco is designed for direct thermal printing and can be considered as BPA and BPS free. Both Dissolving Paper Plus and Dissolving Paper Thermal Eco dissolve quickly, even in cold water, without requiring any additional washing processes. The labeled surface is left clean of residue, and because the paper face and adhesive dissolve completely there is no risk of filters or drains becoming clogged with waste.
"Removing labels without leaving residue behind and dealing with waste can often be a challenge in applications where reusable containers or packages are used but there is no separate washing process in place," says Jouni Iiskola, segment manager, Logistics, UPM Raflatac. "Dissolving Paper Plus and Dissolving Paper Thermal Eco are specifically designed for these types of situations as the labels dissolve quickly, even in cold water."
