UPM Raflatac – New selection of ultra-destructible film labels
FINLAND • The company has expanded its security labels range on the European market with the addition of two new ultra-destructible (UD) film labels. They incorporate tamper resistance and a more sustainable non-PVC construction, and are suitable for a variety of applications.
When alteration or removal from the substrate is attempted, the brittle nature of the film makes it impossible to remove the label in one piece. This serves to authenticate products and protects brands by flagging tampering at any stage in the supply chain.
This UD line is designed for a variety of applications that depend on guaranteed authenticity, and includes: Acrylate Gloss Clear UD and Acetate White UD – both enabling conversion speeds that are up to three times faster than PVC White UD film. These films meet the exacting requirements for UD performance and are ideal for security warranty seals. According to UPM Raflatac, Acrylate Gloss Clear UD is currently the only clear UD filmic material available on the market. When combined with the RP62 EU adhesive, this UD material meets the requirements of even the most challenging pharmaceutical packaging substrates and includes the pharmaceutical product change management guarantee.
