Contoured and semi-squeezable containers require a flexible labeling solution with good conformability to ensure the quality of your product is reflected in the quality of your packaging. Labels must fit well around shaped packaging without any bubbles or wrinkles – and must continue to look good without any edge-lift, even in damp and humid conditions.

Depending on the container shape and level of squeezability, UPM Raflatac recommends Raflex MDO and Raflex PRO for contoured and semi-squeezable containers. Both these films will prevent creasing and bubbling thanks to their high conformability. Typical containers in this segment include shampoo bottles, which are semi-squeezable and feature a relatively flat labeling panel.
Raflex PRO is a popular choice for contoured containers of all shapes and sizes. It offers greater flexibility than PP, giving a high-gloss, no-label look or a brilliant white finish while still offering good conformability. It is the ideal choice for labeling contoured and shaped containers and gives good printing results without a topcoat.
Raflex MDO film is conformable and flexible, with good clarity for a high-quality no-label look or an eye-catching white finish. It conforms well to contoured packaging and squeezes time after time. Its high stiffness in the machine direction allows for improved label dispending as well as better print register control and die-cutting properties than PE.
