UPM Raflatac: Vellum Logistics Fit – new labelstock for shipping and logistics
FINLAND • UPM Raflatac EMEIA has launched a next-generation logistics labelstock which answers industry demand for a more productive, competitive and sustainable solution. The new Vellum Logistics Fit product draws on the latest material advances to combine substantial business benefits with precision-engineered performance.
The thin Vellum Logistics Fit label face has been matched with a leaner HG45 release liner. This provides more labels per same-diameter roll and the potential to upgrade to longer rolls. The result is fewer roll changes in label conversion and dispensing operations, for a marked increase in productivity. The label face and liner retain good strength for reliable conversion, and label end-users will be satisfied with a well-defined thermal transfer print result for reliable scanning. The reduction in material usage also adds value for major label end-users seeking to achieve their sustainability targets. With the RH 6 adhesive, the benefits of the new labelstock are accessible across a wide range of shipping and logistics labelling applications. RH 6 performs well in conditions from chilled to room temperature, on substrates including cardboard and stretch film.
