UPM Raflatac presents the new RP 30 adhesive for wine labelling27.2.2009
UPM Raflatac expands its commitment to the wine industry by introducing the new wine labelling adhesive RP 30 suitable for demanding wine labelling applications.
RP 30 is an acrylic water-based adhesive, specifically designed for all permanent wine labelling applications where wash-off properties are not required. It provides good adhesion to polar surfaces, tolerating fluctuations in temperature and humidity on the bottling line and during bottle storage.
RP 30 provides excellent performance in terms of initial tack and water-resistance in the ice bucket. It is recommended for labelling red, white, sparkling wines, champagne and rosé. RP 30 also shows a very good resistance to edge lifting and is consequently suitable for neck labelling. In order to avoid breaks in high speed dispensing lines, RP 30 can be combined with a PET backing.
The new RP 30 complements UPM Raflatac's range of adhesives for wine labelling together with RP 40 for wash-off applications and the ultra clear RP 74 for clear filmic face materials. RP 30 is currently available ex stock with six constructions, and later on in 2009 with all UPM Raflatac's face materials for wine labelling, both with paper and filmic backings.
A sample swatch with 33 different combinations and technical information can be ordered from www.upmraflatac.com, under News and Publications.
