UPM Raflatac has introduced two adhesive upgrades to continue advances in migration safeguards in line with the EU 10/2011 regulation. The regulation aims to further improve consumer safety, by placing tighter controls on the potential for substance migration from packaging components into food.
UPM Raflatac’s new RP 36 FG and RP 36 ML adhesives have improved non-migration characteristics to further reduce even the slightest possibility of food contamination. They are classed as infant and baby safe, and they are approved for direct food contact, including labelling carcasses, as well as indirect food contact.
Laminates of Foodgloss RP 36 FG and Foodgloss RP 36 ML achieve good results in a Sensory Analysis for Indirect Transition of Flavour according to EN 1230-2 (Robinson test). Improved UV resistance gives the laminate and converted labels a longer shelf life for efficient and convenient stock management. RP 36 FG also offers good clarity for optimal product presentation with clear labels.
Declaration of Confirmity (DoC), as required by the EU 10/2011 regulation, is available on request. DOCs provide the means to retain existing contracts, reduce the potential for product recalls, and help label printers qualify for new business.
