UPM Raflatac showcases sustainable labeling solutions at Labelexpo 2019


CATEGORY: Fairs, events BRAND: UPM Raflatac

UPM Raflatac showcased its sustainable labeling solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2019 (Brussels from September 24-27). UPM Raflatac’s solutions can help printers and brand owners reach beyond their sustainability goals by offering solutions to reduce, recycle and renew.

The company’s thinner and lighter film materials reduce the use of raw materials. The UPM Raflatac PP Lite range combines a lighter face material, a lower coat-weight adhesive and a lighter backing which makes them incredibly lightweight and optimizes the use of raw materials and resources. Ultrathin UPM Raflatac Vanish PCR labels are another good example, featuring 90% recycled content face and liners.


The company optimizes the recycling process of plastic packages by ensuring that labels can be easily removed. UPM Raflatac wash-off adhesive is an excellent way to enable the recyclability of PET containers. Turning waste into a resource is a key concept in the circular economy and an important part of UPM Raflatac’s approach to sustainability. The RafCycle by UPM Raflatac recycling programme supports this by offering a new life for label waste.
