UPM Raflatac's new Raflex MDO films balance the best performance properties of PP and PE for maximum functionality and shelf appeal. Creasing and darting that distort graphics are a thing of the past because this machine direction oriented (MDO) polyolefin film offers excellent conformability and squeezability on contoured containers, while preserving the stiffness of a standard gauge clear polypropylene for consistent application and converting.

Raflex MDO films are ideal for thicker-width bottles that present twice the amount of curve (when compared to flat panel wall-to-wall squeezable containers) and those that require a full squeeze at the bottom of the bottle. Available in both clear (removed clear on clear) and white with RP74 adhesive and both paper and film liners, Raflex MDO films are suitable for a variety of end-uses, including food, beverage and personal care.

"Our new Raflex MDO films offer exceptional on-press performance with enhanced conformability," says Bruce Ruppert, Manager, Product Development, Americas, UPM Raflatac. "Squeeze after squeeze, these clear and white materials are a perfect fit for keeping your branding intact throughout the product life cycle."
