UPM Raflatac: Film for personal care applications
UPM Raflatac launches Raflex Pro Clear a 50-micron film for the personal care market.
Raflex Pro Clear brings a quality no-label look to contoured, flexible and squeezable containers, and Raflex Pro White has high opacity as a foundation for high-quality decoration. These MDO films combine the best properties of PE and PP; looks and functionality, high stiffness for productive label dispensing, good conformability on contoured packaging, and lasting squeezability.
On a thin PET23 release liner, Raflex Pro offers a 40% reduction in thickness and grammage compared to conventional PE85 on HD70. PET23 is a robust choice for running at high speeds and in humid conditions, without downtime from web breaks. Thin film labelstocks reduce total applied costs starting with more labels per roll for fewer roll changes, giving higher productivity in conversion and dispensing. PET23 also provides better raw material efficiency at the start of the labelstock lifecycle, and is commercially recyclable at the end.
