Sustainability is built into our product ranges in many ways. You can see some examples below and we are happy to provide you with more information on request.
European Union legislation requires all thermal paper sold in Europe to be free of Bisphenol A (BPA) as a colour developer after 2 January 2020 due to recent concerns about its safety. We already provide BPA-free thermal labels »
Our bio-based films are made from more than 80% renewable plant-based raw material, which can be recycled in the same way as fossil-based PE films. We are continuously looking for new possibilities to replace fossil based components with bio-based materials »
We provide an extensive selection of label materials that comply with regional regulations and are made in accordance with best manufacturing practices »
With the correct labeling solutions, brand owners can meet their targets for food waste mitigation in line with consumer demand and sustainability requirements »
Our next-generation range of sustainable labelling solutions that not only decrease environmental impacts but also deliver positive benefits in terms of carbon absorption, biodiversity, resource optimization, and sustainable forest management »
FSC and PEFC forest certifications ensure that the fibre we use is legally and responsibly sourced from sustainably managed forests »
Innovations are at the very core of our business. Two examples of UPM Raflatac’s product innovations include our wash-off adhesives that enable better recyclability in logistical applications and for glass and PET bottles. Our solvent-free adhesives are ideal for durable end-use applications, where solvent-based adhesives are normally a must »
We have developed several security label products to shield consumer goods from tampering, counterfeiting, and diversion. The security labelling ensures consumer safety in pharmaceuticals and food labelling »
We also offer solutions for recyclability, lightweighting and using recycled content. For more information, please contact your closest UPM Raflatac representative.
We consider recycling to be one of the most essential aspects of product sustainability and, for that reason, we want to help brand owners reach their own recyclability targets. We offer recyclable shrink sleeve labels for PET bottles, VANISH™ films for enabling can recyclability and wash off labels for logistics applications and glass and PET bottles.
Raw materials are often the greatest contributors to environmental performance. Thus, by designing resource optimized materials that have the same functional properties as their standard counterparts, we can reduce their environmental impact. Lightweighting can be done with the face, liner and adhesive.
In line with circular economy thinking, we offer label products that include recycled raw materials.
