Self-adhesive label materials producer UPM Raflatac has introduced four new products for security labeling to the European market.
The four materials, Raflasec Holo Security, Raflasec Fibres, Raflasec Seal and Raflasec Chameleon, have cahnging security, anti-counterfeiting, and tamper-proof features.
Raflasec Holo Security is a holographic material, which can be combined with security cuts to break the label when tampered. It is suitable for luxury packaging applications.
Raflasec Fibres includes both visible and invisible fibers that will support authentication under UV light. Its chemical sensitization feature enables to change color, if removal with chemicals is attempted.
Raflasec Seal, which tears easily, provides low investment costs, high opacity and printability.
Raflasec Chameleon is a purple-green color-shifting material that changes color when removed and it cannot be reapplied.
UPM Raflatac security and postal segment manager Thomas Treichel said: "Our change management guarantee for products in the new Raflasec range ensures supply stability for manufacturers and reduces the need for requalification.
"All products in the range are fully backed up by our global supply chain, world-class expertise, and comprehensive customer support – bringing even greater peace of mind to security labeling."
In April, UPM Raflatac launched two new lightweight solutions for wash-off logistics labeling applications.
The new materials include Thermalite Top+ PEFC and Thermalite Eco+ PEFC. They can be paired with the RP45 LW adhesive to adhere permanently to even rough or patterned surfaces of the label.
UPM’s new materials can be used for effective labeling of plastic pallets, crates and other containers.
