UPM Raflatac has environment-friendly


UPM Raflatac will showcase its innovative and sustainable label solutions under the theme ‘Labeling a Smarter Future’ at Labelexpo Asia from 5-8 December 2017. The solutions displayed at the exhibition help printers and brand owners stand out in the highly competitive market.

THIN FILM is the latest film label stock offering from UPM Raflatac with lighter and thinner materials. Thinner film label stock means more labels on a roll, less downtime for roll changes and less storage and transportation costs. At the same time, the product’s environmental footprint decreases significantly.

UPM Raflatac wine labels create a vivid and colorful picture on the wine bottle, visualizing your imagination of the product. Even in wet or humid conditions, our ice-resistant labels will stay effective and appealing.

Being at the forefront of safe label materials, UPM Raflatac’s newly launched adhesive for direct contact with foods complies with the relevant regulations on food packaging to ensure food safety.

With a deep understanding of the market and pharmaceutical industry regulations as well as the support of pharmaceutical labeling experts, UPM Raflatac is dedicated to developing medicine label solutions that meet all the specifications and requirements, thus providing the best products of the highest standards.

For UPM Raflatac’s Garment label, the adhesives are free from chemicals like APEO, making the product extremely environmentally friendly. Besides, the labels also excel in adhesion, with a removable feature that allows for removal without leaving adhesive residue or damaging the clothes.

For high density polyethylene and rough bottle surfaces used in lubricant industry, UPM Raflatac provides label materials that are specially designed and used exclusively for lubricant containers. These materials not only meet end customers’ packaging requirements on strong adhesion and high quality, but also solve such potential visual problems as edge warping, bulging, bubbling, edge lifting and edge pleating.

Also, UPM Raflatac has environment-friendly materials for logistic labels to meet green delivery packages trends.

RafCycle is a recycling concept that reuses pressure-sensitive label waste to create new materials. UPM Raflatac will be at Stand E2 – F25 at Labelexpo Asia at Shanghai New International Expo Center.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
