Self-adhesive label materials manufacturer UPM Raflatac has expanded its food labeling product range with the introduction of two new peel and reseal label materials.
Launched in the European market, Peel-Rseal PP White FTC 60 and Peel-Rseal PP Clear FTC 50 have been developed for re-closure labeling applications, which need to be opened and closed multiple times.
The new top-coated PP film face materials, which are compliant with food safe regulations, can be paired with RC512, a new UV acrylic adhesive for open-close labels for food applications.
According to the company, open-close labels make packaging more user friendly and high-performance reclosing is crucial for food packaging to ensure that food stays fresh.
UPM Raflatac food segment manager Jouni Iiskola said: "These two new peel and reseal film products provide excellent open-close functionality for food applications.
“The new RC512 adhesive ensures that labels can be opened and closed multiple times while still sticking well and looking good – giving end users a positive experience and enhancing the brand image at the same time."
In April, UPM Raflatac launched two new ightweight 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. They will also help to sent back into circulation over and over again with minimum effort and maximum efficiency.
With around 3,000 employees, UPM Raflatac distributes paper and film label stock for consumer product and industrial labeling applications.
