Self-adhesive label materials producer UPM Raflatac has expanded its food labelling product range with two new peel-and-reseal film label materials and a corresponding adhesive.

The two new PEEL-RSEAL PP WHITE FTC 60 and PEEL-RSEAL PP CLEAR FTC 50 with RC512 adhesive are suitable for packaging products which are closed and opened several times.

UPM Raflatac Food segment manager Jouni Iiskola said: “These two new peel-and-reseal film products provide excellent open-close functionality for food applications.

“The new RC512 adhesive ensures that labels can be opened and closed multiple times while still sticking well and looking good – giving end users a positive experience and enhancing the brand image at the same time.”

The company noted that both top-coated PP film face materials comply with food safety regulations.

PEEL-RSEAL PP WHITE FTC 60 is a white solid film while PEEL-RSEAL PP CLEAR FTC 50 is transparent and suitable for the no-label-look.

Both the films work well with RC512, a new UV acrylic adhesive designed for open-close labels for food applications.

US-based Green Man Brewery selected pressure-sensitive labels from UPM Raflatac.

The new packaging is expected to help the company to increase its production speed and efficiency.

UPM Raflatac focuses on the production of self-adhesive label materials, including paper and film label stock for consumer product and industrial labelling.

Last year, the company reported sales of nearly €1.4bn.
