UPM Raflatac launches new peel and reseal products for food labeling

Press Release 15.6.2017 11:00 EEST

(UPM Raflatac, Helsinki, 15 June 2017 at 10:00 EET) - UPM Raflatac has widened its food labeling product range with two new peel and reseal label materials for the European market. PEEL-RSEAL PP WHITE FTC 60 and PEEL-RSEAL PP CLEAR FTC 50 are ideal solutions for more demanding re-closure labeling applications where the packaging will be opened and closed multiple times.

Open-close labels make packaging more user friendly and high-performance reclosing is essential for food packaging to ensure that food stays fresh. Both these new top-coated PP film face materials are compliant with food safe regulations. They are best paired with RC512, a new UV acrylic adhesive specifically designed for open-close labels for food applications.

"These two new peel and reseal film products provide excellent open-close functionality for food applications," says Jouni Iiskola, Segment Manager, Food, UPM Raflatac. "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."
