UPM Raflatac – New extra-matt label face for reliable barcode scanning

PET Extra Matt Silver TC 50, an extra-matt label face stock for reliable barcode scanning on durable goods

FINLAND • The company has launched PET Extra Matt Silver TC 50, an extra-matt label face stock for reliable barcode scanning on durable goods. Its gloss rate of less than 20% gloss minimizes light-scatter and directs more light back to barcode readers, increasing the effective contrast and the consistency of scanning.

Pre-printed information such as tracking and unit information is also protected for the lifetime of the label by a scratch, smudge and chemical resistant topcoat.

PET Extra Matt Silver TC 50 is available with non-solvent adhesives featuring high temperature and chemical resistance. The RC15 adhesive provides good adhesion on polar surfaces like glass, steel and ABS, whereas RC18 is designed for polar as well as non-polar surfaces such as PE and PP plastics.
