The solvents typically used for the highest performance self-adhesive labels can present risks to the environment. They also have a higher environmental impact during their life cycle due to the energy required after adhesive coating to evaporate the solvent, which is a lost residual.
But we’ve changed all that. UV acrylic adhesives from UPM Raflatac are all solvent free. This not only reduces the environmental impact of producing our labels, it is also an eco-designed choice for your product labeling. And by embracing our alternative, you can highlight your position as a leader in sustainable product labeling practices.
Exceptional durability, achieved sustainably
For extreme conditions like high-temperature automotive labeling, our solvent-free RX adhesives are the superior choice. RX15 is a high-tack adhesive for metal, glass, and other polar substrates that adheres strongly throughout the lifetime of the product. For non-polar surfaces such as PE and PP plastics, RX18 offers the same extreme levels of adhesion and durability. Both products remain stable under a range of environmental conditions, including when exposed to UV light or chemicals.
Specially designed for film face materials, labels backed by adhesives in the RX family remain firmly in place and do not slip, making them a sustainable and dependable choice for all durables applications.
