UPM Raflatac Qualifies with Epson’s Newest Liner-free Compatible Thermal Label Printer

UPM Raflatac, a global supplier of innovative and sustainable labeling materials, today announced the UPM Raflatac OptiCut™ Direct Thermal (DT) Linerless product line has been qualified on the new Epson OmniLink® TM-L100 liner-free compatible thermal label printer. This will enable Epson and UPM Raflatac to offer improved linerless label performance for OmniLink TM-L100 users in the hospitality segment.

“UPM Raflatac has developed both our assets and products to meet the needs of the fast-growing DT Linerless market. This incredible partnership with Epson will allow more end-users to benefit from the efficiencies, high performance, and sustainable design of our OptiCut products,” stated Brinder Gill, Sales Director, UPM Raflatac Americas.

In addition, UPM Raflatac is poised to meet strong growth in demand for DT Linerless material, despite supply chain disruptions common in many markets.

“Our new production line investment has increased our production capacity by 100 million m2, and we can support our customers through our global distribution network. This enables us to face the fast transition to DT Linerless in the market.,” said Gill.

UPM Raflatac OptiCut products not only offer excellent adhesion and repositionability, but customers can also make informed choices as the carbon footprint of the UPM Raflatac Linerless product line was recently certified by the Carbon Trust, a global climate consultancy driven by the mission to accelerate the move to a decarbonized future.

"In today’s everchanging environment, liner-free thermal label printing provides flexibility to meet a variety of business demands," said David Vander Dussen, product manager, Business Systems, Epson America. "With this new qualification, UPM Raflatac has demonstrated its commitment to delivering high quality media solutions for liner-free printing, underscoring the reliability customers can expect when using OptiCut DT media with the OmniLink TM-L100."
