New label film for logistics and transport

UPM Raflatac has launched a new label film specified to make businesses more competitive in logistics and transport applications in. The new Polylaser Logistics Fit label stock is strictly fit for purpose. It provides all the required properties, without the unnecessary weight.

In label conversion, Polylaser Logistics Fit runs at high speeds on-press without matrix breaks. It has good pre-printing properties, and the RP FH adhesive has low bleed to keep converting lines clean and smoothly running, according to UPM.

Says Eulalia Alcaraz, Business Segment Director for A4 & Sheets at UPM Raflatac: “We set out to create a product that would reliably and sustainably provide all the required performance during conversion and laser printing as we cut back the unnecessary weight. The result is a product that does everything required of it in common logistics and transport applications, with an entirely new level of efficiency.

For label end-users, monochrome and colour laser printability combines with toner anchorage for durable print even in humid conditions. Good lay-flat characteristics give excellent feed-through on laser printers, and the RP FH adhesive withstands high temperatures without bleeding to avoid printer jams and extend maintenance intervals.

UPM Raflatac has a global service network consisting of 13 factories on five continents and a broad network of sales offices and slitting and distribution terminals worldwide.
