The UPM Raflatac PP Lite range combines a lighter face material, a lower coat-weight adhesive and a lighter backing which makes them incredibly lightweight and optimizes the use of raw materials and resources. Ultrathin UPM Raflatac Vanish™ PCR labels are another good example, featuring 90 percent recycled content face and liners.</p><p>The company optimizes the recycling process of plastic packages by ensuring that labels can be easily removed. UPM Raflatac wash-off adhesive is an excellent way to enable the recyclability of PET containers. Turning waste into a resource is a key concept in the circular economy and an important part of UPM Raflatac’s approach to sustainability. The RafCycle® by UPM Raflatac recycling programme supports this by offering a new life for label waste.</p><p>In addition, UPM Raflatac helps to reduce the use of fossil raw materials by offering renewable options, such as certified materials and other bio-based alternatives. UPM Raflatac’s revolutionary new Forest Film™ is the industry’s first wood-based polypropylene film material. Another innovative labeling material that will be showcased at the exhibition is UPM Raflatac Fossil-Free Adhesive – a renewable multipurpose solution, which together with other responsibly sourced label materials like the forest positive UPM Raflatac RAFNXT+, forms a comprehensive solution making each layer of labeling even more sustainable.</p><p>Visit <strong>stand 5D41 in Hall 5</strong> to find out more about UPM Raflatac’s sustainable labeling solutions.</p><p><a href="http://pet.upm.com/l/Kq-7Zb-DWxG8" target="_blank">Click here to download pictures »</a></p><p><strong>For further information please contact:</strong><br>Heli Aalto, Senior Manager, Communications, UPM Raflatac, tel. +358 2041 50699 <br> <br>     </p>
