UPM Raflatac has introduced a new Raflasec range of security labelling materials for the European market.

The new Raflasec range includes four new products, including Holo Security, Fibres, Seal and Chameleon, which are said to have a two-year shelf life from their manufacturing date.

UPM Raflatac Security Postal segment manager Thomas Treichel said: “Our change management guarantee for products in the new Raflasec range ensures supply stability for manufacturers and reduces the need for requalification.

“All products in the range are fully backed up by our global supply chain, world-class expertise, and comprehensive customer support - bringing even greater peace of mind to security labelling.”

The newly introduced label materials are available with different security, anti-counterfeiting, and tamper-proof features.

A holographic material that breaks when tampered with, Raflasec Holo Security is suitable for luxury packaging applications and can be combined with security cuts.

"Our change management guarantee for products in the new Raflasec range ensures supply stability for manufacturers and reduces the need for requalification."

Raflasec Fibres is made of visible and invisible fibres to enable authentication under UV light. It also contains a chemical sensitisation feature which causes the colour of the material to change when removal with chemicals is attempted.

Raflasec Seal, which tears easily, offers low investment costs, high opacity, and printability.

The purple-green Raflasec Chameleon material changes colour when removed and offers a dry-peel feature that eliminates adhesive residue.

Raflasec Holo Security and Raflasec Chameleon are available from UPM Raflatac's Small Roll Service.
