UPM Raflatac EMEIA, a self-adhesive label material producer, has introduced its PP Lite labelling material, which is suitable for rigid containers used in the home, personal care and food segments.

Manufactured from lightweight materials, PP Lite has been designed to improve sustainability.  

The label's production minimises waste, while its supply chain reduces transportation activities and emissions.

In addition, PP Lite's printing and dispensing operations require fewer reel changes, helping to reduce waste and energy consumption.

UPM Raflatac EMEIA business segment manager Päivi Knihti said: "Our Label Life concept looks at the lifetime impacts of different label stock to assess their environmental performance.

"PP Lite's printing and dispensing operations require fewer reel changes, helping to reduce waste and energy consumption."

“Through lifecycle assessment in accordance with ISO standards, we found that moving from conventional PP to PP Lite label materials (face, adhesive, and liner) results in 16% less material use, a 15% reduction in energy and water, and a 18% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.”
