Vellum Logistics Fit: UPM Raflatac launches its fittest ever labelstock for shipping and logistics

​(UPM Raflatac EMEIA, Tampere, 09 October 2014) – UPM Raflatac EMEIA has launched a next-generation logistics labelstock which answers industry demand for a more productive, competitive and sustainable solution. The new Vellum Logistics Fit product draws on the latest material advances to combine substantial business benefits with precision-engineered performance.

The thin Vellum Logistics Fit label face has been matched with a leaner HG45 release liner as a move away from the traditional HG65. This provides more labels per same-diameter roll and the potential to upgrade to longer rolls. The result is fewer roll changes in label conversion and dispensing operations, for a marked increase in productivity.

The label face and liner retain good strength for reliable conversion, and label end-users will be satisfied with a well-defined thermal transfer print result for reliable scanning. The reduction in material usage also adds value for major label end-users seeking to achieve their sustainability targets.

Engineered for business and sustainability needs

With the RH 6 adhesive, the benefits of the new labelstock are accessible across a wide range of shipping and logistics labelling applications. RH 6 performs well in conditions from chilled to room temperature, on substrates including cardboard and stretch film.

“The products in our next-generation ‘Fit’ range introduce more productive, competitive and environmentally responsible solutions in their intended applications,” explains Jon Lenck, Director, Business Segment VIP at UPM Raflatac EMEIA.

“Vellum Logistics Fit is engineered using the latest material and technological developments to be precisely fit for purpose. Label printers and end-users in logistics and shipping can look forward to a balance of performance and efficiency optimized for today’s business and sustainability needs.”
