As a result of UPM Raflatac’s commitment to source paper products from sustainably managed forests, ‘Raflacoat Plus’ label paper for prime product labelling has now been replaced by ‘PEFC Raflacoat Plus’ in all applications. PEFC Raflacoat Plus retains the same exceptional mid-gloss standards, with high opacity and contrast supporting fine print detail for branding and product decoration. It is also available with the thin and recyclable ProLiner PP30 backing.
As part of an on-going process to widen the forest certified paper labelstock offer in Europe, UPM Raflatac has also introduced ‘PEFC Raflacoat Opti’ as a cost-efficient option for printing digitally with HP Indigo, and the FSC® certified phenol-free thermal papers ‘Thermal Eco BPAF FMC’ and ‘Thermal Eco TPF FMC’. The new FSC certified label faces ‘Fleur de Coton White WSA FMC’ and ‘Fleur de CotonIvoire WSA FMC’ offer a high-quality textured look for wine labelling.
UPM Raflatac’s chain of custody system tracks certified material from the forest to the final labelstock product, and provides third-party verification that that the wood used in label materials originates from responsibly managed forests. UPM promotes all credible forest certification systems including the two major international schemes: FSC, the Forest Stewardship Council®, and PEFC™, the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes.
