UPM Raflatac at Labelexpo Asia 2017


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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
