EU Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EU applies to energy-related products which have a significant impact on energy consumption: The energy efficiency of these products needs to be clearly labelled to guide decisions by purchasers.
UPM Raflatac has developed a series of removable label materials to meet brand owner requirements for full functionality, end-user convenience and visually high quality, and they also fulfil brand owners’ increasingly rigorous demands for environmentally sound labelling alternatives.
White goods like refrigerators, washing machines and dryers as well as TVs, window glazing and air-conditioning units have been included in the scope of Energy Labelling Directive for some time. More product groups are gradually being included, with vacuum cleaners among the most recent products to require energy labels.
UPM Raflatac energy labelling solutions offer filmic, coated paper and digital label faces with a choice of removable and ultra-removable adhesives selected for different types of surfaces and levels of smoothness or texture.
These dedicated materials assure that the labelled information is present to assist purchasing decisions, and that label removal is effortless and convenient without tearing. Once the label is removed, sensitive surfaces remain free from adhesive residue. Advanced water-based and UV-acrylic adhesives offer more environmentally sound alternatives to solvent-based products and have equivalent or better performance in numerous applications.
