UPM Raflatac has launched a high-clarity deep freeze adhesive for the European market. The new 149 DF adhesive is designed for fast conversion and minimal residue on die tools, resulting in higher efficiency. With clear film labels, the water-based acrylic 149 DF also provides an improved level of transparency compared to hotmelt solutions and enhances shelf-appeal for frozen foods. The acrylic formulation also provides good UV-ageing resistance to retain adhesive performance and clarity in the long-term.
The 149 DF adhesive is available with a full range of face materials, both films and papers. 149 DF is food contact approved, with Documents of Compliance available on request as an assurance of legislatively compliant food safety in the packaging chain.
