UPM Raflatac Introduces RP62 EU Labelling Adhesive

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

UPM Raflatac's (Finland) tamper-verification products with the RP62 EU adhesive exploit the properties of paperboard typically used for pharmaceutical packaging, which carries a water-based varnish. RP62 EU is available with a range of clear film as well as paper-based label faces, and an RP62 EUL variant enables missing label detection by luminescent detector.

The latest additions to the range incorporate destructible label faces for an even higher level of security. They also prevent misappropriation of the label onto counterfeit products. Pharmaclear PP Seal visibly stretches on removal, and Pharmaclear PP Tear TC displays the surface torn from tampered packs. The Tamperproof paper face either breaks or delaminates, and the conformable and fragile Pharmatight paper reveals damage or fractures..

UPM Raflatac is one of the world's leading producers of self-adhesive label materials. It supplies high-quality paper and film label stock for consumer product and industrial labelling through a global network of factories, distribution terminals and sales offices. The company employs around 2,900 people and had sales of EUR 1.4 billion ($1.5 billion) in 2015. UPM Raflatac is part of UPM - The Biofore Company. More information is available online.
