Polypropylene film (PP) and polyethylene film (PE) are the most popular label films, but they have very different strengths. To avoid compromise, new products, such as our Raflex family of conformable films, have been developed to offer the best properties of both PP and PE in a single material.
The Raflex family of conformable films offers a highly flexible no-label look for contoured containers. Discover how these advanced materials combine the benefits of PP and PE by ordering your free sample today. Simply choose from Raflex PRO for contoured containers or Raflex MDO for squeezable containers, both available in white and clear.
Squeezable containers pose a labeling challenge as they require a flexible solution that often has to survive in damp or humid environments. Raflex MDO is conformable and squeezable, with good clarity for an appealing premium look. It is also stiffer than PE, with better print register control, die-cutting, and label dispensing properties.
High-clarity film labels for rigid and semi-squeezable containersPP set the original standard for a high-clarity no-label look on rigid and semi-squeezable containers. But the bar has been raised higher with Raflex Plus – thinner, lighter, and less stiff than PP, it offers better conformability on contoured, semi-squeezable containers, while reducing material usage and offering a high level of clarity.
UPM Raflatac’s lifecycle assessment tool – Label Life – enables comparisons of the environmental impacts of different label choices over their entire lifecycle.
Based on the most comprehensive lifecycle assessment (LCA) in the industry, Label Life delivers reliable and easy to understand information to help label printers and end-users make sustainable choices.
