UPM Raflatac announces clear-on-clear and solid white label materials to join PP Lite sustainable range
Monday 09. April 2018 - UPM Raflatac has further expanded its PP Lite range of labeling solutions for the European market with the introduction of two new products, clear-on-clear PP FTC Lite and PP Solid White FTC Lite. The PP Lite range helps brands achieve their sustainability targets with lightweight, eco-designed face materials, adhesives, and backing materials.
Products in the PP Lite range combine a lighter face material, a lower coat-weight adhesive, and a lighter backing. This makes them incredibly lightweight overall, optimizes raw material use, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, energy and water consumption, and waste. As well as helping brand owners increase the sustainability of their packaging, PP Lite range also boosts productivity across the value chain.
PP Solid White FTC Lite is a non-pearlescent, solid white PP film that offers a bright white base color with dependable performance. PP Clear FTC Lite is a clear PP film that can be combined with R704 adhesive and PET Lite liner to offer a coveted no-label look as well as clean performance in converting and dispensing. Both films are ideal for multi-purpose labeling applications on smooth, rigid containers. The high strength of PP Solid White FTC Lite’s solid core also makes it ideal for multilayer and peel-and-read applications. Both label solutions meet EU food safety standards.
“Our PP Lite range of labeling solutions has been welcomed by customers, helping brand owners achieve their sustainability targets and differentiate from the competition while also increasing efficiency and productivity,” explains Päivi Knihti, Segment Manager, Films, EMEIA, UPM Raflatac. “The addition of clear-on-clear PP FTC Lite and PP Solid White FTC Lite to the range provides even more options for brands to make a more sustainable choice.”
