UPM Raflatac – New food-safe topcoat for premium-look food labels

UPM Raflatacs’s new food-safe PET Gloss White FTC 50 fulfils the needs for food labels compliant to EU 10/2011

FINLAND • The company’s new food-safe PET Gloss White FTC 50 for the European market fulfils the needs for food labels compliant to EU 10/2011 with a premium level of shelf-appeal.

According to UPM Raflatac, this topcoat supports quality print results with lasting resistance to rubbing, scratching and moisture. It is designed for labelling chilled, deep freeze and peel-and-reseal products. In addition, high temperature resistance makes this PET-based label film ideal for labelling “cook in the bag” products. In addition, using plastic-identical labels on PET packaging offers more opportunities for recycling.

Compliance to EU 10/2011 is a legal obligation which minimizes the risk of food contamination from packaging containing plastics. In addition to protecting consumers, compliance helps protect label suppliers and brand owners from the liabilities and reputation damage caused by product recalls.
