Antalis has launched the new and improved version of the graphic self-adhesive range from UPM Raflatac, RAFNXT+, the world’s first label material to be verified by the Carbon Trust.

“The importance of providing customers with sustainable and high-performance products continues to increase in today’s environmentally aware society. RAFNXT+ helps to mitigate climate change, drawing from responsibly managed forests and decreasing carbon emissions,” it said.

RAFNXT+ is a new range from UPM Raflatac, a line of high-quality, self-adhesive sheets. The lower grammage backing paper of RAFNXT+ (3gsm lighter) is FSC certified, allowing Antalis to classify the whole range as FSC mixed credit. The face paper in the new range remains the same as previous Raflatac Graphic products, so the high-quality printing performance is unaffected.

UPM Raflatac’s RAFNXT+ is a fully FSC certified product

According to the company, RAFNXT+ is the world’s first label material to be verified by the Carbon Trust. An achievement accomplished due to the product design’s smarter use and choice of natural resources and the use of less raw materials, energy, and water. 

Ben Cahill, product manager at Antalis, comments, “We are pleased to be the exclusive self-adhesive sheet distributor for UPM Raflatac in the UK, and their new RAFNXT+ range provides customers with a fully FSC certified product, which also has the advantage of being the world’s first label material to be verified by the Carbon Trust.”

Antalis is a Kokusai Pulp & Paper Group member, a worldwide leader in distributing papers, packaging, and visual communication media, based in Japan.

In Europe and Latin America, Antalis is the leading B2B distributor of products and services in papers and industrial packaging, and number two in the distribution of visual communication media, with global reported sales of €2.1 billion in 2019.
